Dear Masters’ School China Program Participants:
I began studying Chinese in preparation for a move to Taiwan with my family when I was twelve years old. I had no idea then how greatly time in Asia would impact the rest of my life. I have now been speaking Mandarin and spending time in Asia for almost thirty years. After graduating from high school in Taipei, I spent a year at Fudan University in Shanghai, China. My graduate work was done in the field of International Education, with fieldwork on the plight of Tibetan refugees in Indian exile communities.
Working extensively in the field of International Education over the past decade, I have planned, led, or administratively supervised high school or gap year programs to China/Tibet, Thailand, India, Mexico, and Morocco. I have also taught social studies courses, including Asian and Global Studies, Chinese Language & Culture, and Tibetan Studies at two high schools in New England.
Connecting with people in China and New York over the past year to develop your itinerary, which will expose you to fascinating learning opportunities in the capital city of Beiing and the southwestern province of Yunnan, has been an intensive and satisfying experience. With Lin Fu as your program leader in the field, Masters teacher Kristen Tregar and a strong support team working with us in China, I am confident that you have an amazing experience ahead of you.
