Meet the teacher

Hello Dear parents and students,

My name is Meiyan(Juliet) Ma, my students call me Ma lao shi. This is the first time I have returned to work after being a homestay mother for three years. I am so grateful that I can join our excellent Kindergarten team again with Mrs. Newell and Mrs. Tapp.

I have worked in Gavilan Peak from 2014 to 2018 taught K-8 specials, 4/5th grade Mandarin immersion, Mandarin 1-2 and Kindergarten. I got a bachelor's and a master's degree in China and soon became a teacher in an institute in Beijing. I hold an Arizona Elementary teaching certificate with Early childhood and SEI endorsements.

 After getting pregnant, I moved back to China and gave birth to my son, Yao Yi. He will soon be 3 years old and he will start preschool. I am very proud of him. As a mother, I can feel the love and concern of our parents for their children. I will do my best to take care and support my students, just like how I would like other teachers to treat my child.

I am very excited for this school year and I am more than ready to have a wonderful journey with my students. Thank you again for sharing your precious gems with me!
