Why did you come to teach at PTCS?
I came to teach at Pui Tak Christian School because I believe God has opened a door of opportunity for me. Since I was 8 years old I had a heart for China. Because of that I wanted to one day travel to China. As I grew older and started teaching for Sunday school and tutoring at James Monroe Elementary, I thought maybe I can teach in China. That prayer petition I held so close to my heart so the Lord gave me an opportunity not to teach children in China but in Chinatown Chicago. I am grateful and blessed by Pui Tak Christian School.
What do you enjoy most about teaching?
I enjoy seeing the faces of a child that brightens up after they have learned something new.
What are your favorite moments with students?
I love the conversations I have with students, they are so amusing and wonderful! It is so fun!
