王楠 Wáng Nán started in November, and we’re really happy to have her as a teacher at Ni Hao Children’s Community and part of our team!! She has moved from Palmerston North to Wellington for this role too, which we are really grateful for.
Nan is a registered teacher in New Zealand, currently completing a postgraduate diploma in Education at Massey University, with eight years of language teaching experience and a well-rounded skill set from organisational and problem-solving skills to communication and management skill.
She believes that learning is a lifelong process. Teachers should expose the students to experiences that allow them to test their understanding of knowledge and strengthen learning capabilities or encourage new learning skills to emerge. To make this happen, she strives to act as a guide instead of a lecturer in the class, offering her students various interactive learning activities to deepen their understanding of knowledge and opportunities to develop their learning skills in a stimulating and inspiring environment. She also believes that all students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Therefore, it is her desire to create this type of learning atmosphere where students can meet their full potential.
A very warm welcome to Nan – you’ll be seeing more of her at school in 2020 🙂
