In this CITED conversation, a Chinese immigrant teacher and a Chinese immigrant teacher educator will invite attendees to rethink teacher education partnerships in ways that prioritize Chinese immigrant families. Through examples, they will share how they partnered with low-income Chinese immigrant families to envision and co-construct culturally relevant classrooms. In doing so, they offer implications for how teacher education might rethink partnerships and reposition families.

Joining CSI Phi Beta Delta Honor Society

I have been nominated to become a member of the CSI Phi Beta Delta Honor Society for International Scholars.

Phi Beta Delta is the first honor society in the United States dedicated to recognizing individuals who have demonstrated scholarly achievement and performed outstanding service and leadership in the area of international education. This nomination means a lot to me, regarding my research on Asian international teacher candidates (as part of an ongoing research project on Asian pre-service and in-service teachers in the U.S.) as well as my international service in curriculum development and children’s museum education.
