Our Chinese mission statement is to educate students who are passionate about communicating in Chinese in an authentic environment while using the three modes of communication in a culturally appropriate way that allows them to be independent problem solvers in order to navigate in a Chinese world.
We provide an engaging, inquiry-driven, Chinese–English dual language immersion
environment to nurture tomorrow’s global leaders.
Meet Our Talented Staffs
Ms. Kiki is the director at Kids Elite and is responsible for planning and implementing all curriculum and programs.
I am a passionate, creative, and energetic teacher of both Mandarin and Japanese for over 10 years. Certificate in Teaching Chinese as a Heritage and Foreign Language Program at the National Center for K-16 Chinese Language Pedagogy at UC Berkeley and Child Development Site Supervisor Permit. Past education includes Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and Computer Assisted Instruction in Chinese at the Chinese Culture University in Taiwan, and the Leadership Development Program for Teachers of Mandarin Language and Culture at Stanford University.
My personal mission is to utilize language development as a means to help young people prepare for the 21st Century. In the past, it was good enough for a young person to just passively memorize information one subject at a time and to test well. Now, success in an increasingly complex world calls on people to blend skills and combine knowledge from multiple disciplines. So that’s why I’m excited about combining Mandarin development with science, sports, and cultural activities where kids can mix all their talents together to produce products that will make them and their parents proud.
