你好, 我叫Jing. My name is Jing and I am now a full-time teacher who working with Sammy, Emily and Sarah. I am originally from China and I have been living in Christchurch since 2004. I have two children (Ruichen 9 years old and Ruina 3 years old). In 2013, I graduated from the University of Canterbury with a Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (Early Childhood). I have been working as a teacher for 7 years. Children are my priority, and I commit to providing them with the best caring, cultural richness, well-being and sense of belonging, warm and safe environment, and trusting nurturing relationships. I am a passionate and reflective teacher with great confidence. I believe in building strong, trusting and respectful relationships with all tamariki, teachers, whānau and the wider community of all cultures. My teaching practice is very calm and respectful. I practice RIE philosophy, Kaupapa Māori Principles and Freedom of movement. I am looking forward to getting to know you, so we can all share your children’s learning experience.
