I’m proud to be a Neill Longhorn! I was born and raised in China. While majoring in English Language and Literature in college, I was fascinated by the American culture. My college professor, Ms. Polly Amrein, inspired me to pursue the American Dream. After teaching English at college for 6 years while broadcasting news on TV in English, I decided to pursue a Master Degree and explore the rest of the world. I came to America in 1992, and obtained a Master’s degree in education from Louisiana University at Monroe. It has been exciting to learn and grow with all my students in Texas for the past 24 years. My students are like sponges, motivated to learn and build confidence! If I were to relive my life, I would still choose teaching as my career because it has truly been a rewarding experience.
