Part Time Educational Assistant

My Chinese family name is 翟(Zhái in Pinyin, Chak in Cantonese). The character 翟 is composed of 羽 (feathers) and 隹(bird). I love the beauty of Chinese characters and like sharing stories and meanings with students. I was born and grew up in HK. After studying anthropology at university, I worked and studied in mainland China, Germany and Luxembourg. Having worked in both business and educational NGOs, I hope to help students see the value of their learning by applying it in real-life settings. I am the mother of two biracial children. Learning and development in multi-lingual and multi-cultural contexts, particularly learning Chinese as an additional language (CAL), is my special interest. I am delighted to be part of DC.
