Li Laoshi

3rd Grade Teacher

Biyi Li joined the teaching staff at NWCA in 2014 and will serve as our third grade teacher this year. A graduate of the University of the Pacific in California, she received a Master’s Degree in Special Education. She studied Psychology at Shanghai Normal University Tianhua College, which she says helped her recognize the mental development and behaviors in students of different ages. As a proverb says, “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime,” Li laoshi feels that a good teacher is one who does all she can to make the students an important key to their educational experience. In her class, students are the center of the learning process. With the guidance of the teacher, students can better understand themselves and find their own learning styles on the basis of various personalities and hobbies. She says that being sensitive to notice student needs, passionate to inspire student minds and patient to guide their learning are her strengths.
