Chunze Lai Enrichment Leader: Mandarin Chinese Club
Ni Hao! (Hello!) My name is Chunze Lai and I will be the lead teacher for the Mandarin Chinese Club.
I was born in a small town in Sichuan Province of Mainland China. I spent 18 years full of happiness and joy in my hometown before I was admitted to a top university in China. After graduating with honor from college, I came to the U.S. to pursue my PhD degree.
While I was in graduate school, I got an opportunity to volunteer to teach at the Minnesota Chinese Academy.
After the addition of two sweet girls in my family, my experience of teaching Chinese has become more enriched. I am proud of myself being their first educator of the Chinese language, and more, the bridge between the eastern and western cultures. I moved to Missoula with my family in 2015 and had enjoyed every moment of my life in this beautiful town. I am excited about this opportunity at the Missoula International School and cannot wait to share my experience with these lovely kids.
