Mrs. Wang is the Mandarin teacher here at MMHS and this is her third year teaching in Mashpee. The Falconer wanted to sit down with her to explore how teaching has changed since the pandemic. We also learn more about who she is outside of school.
The Falconer: Can you tell me about where you grew up in China?
Ms. Wang: I grew up in Beijing, China. I was born in Beijing and was there until I turned 24.
The Falconer: What inspired you to move to the United States?
Ms. Wang: Nothing, it was because my husband wanted to come to the United States to finish his PHD. The United States has the best university, also research and the best professor. So this is why my husband wanted to continue his education and find this famous professor to get his PHD. So this is why I followed him and came over, by that time I had no plan and I just followed him.
The Falconer: Do you still have family in China?
Ms. Wang: Yes, my old family, my parents, relatives, my husband's family. They are all in China.
