“Fluency over accuracy. Confidence over proficiency. I want my students to be able to feel comfortable with their language skills regardless of their level. I encourage my students to just say what they want whether it is grammatically correct or not, and we will improve their skills together.”
 
Hometown: Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.
 
Lisa received a B.A. in Applied Linguistics from Portland State University along with a TESL Certificate and has been teaching at Joy since July 2014. Her prior teaching experiences include tutoring university students in English, working as an English Conversation Partner, teaching at an English Summer Camp in South Korea, and teaching English to adults in a community setting for a year-and-a-half. Lisa’s hobbies include reading, doing arts and crafts, traveling, and watching TV.
 
OVERALL EXPERIENCE: I am enjoying my time at Joy. The workload for a fresh-out-of-college-beginner-teacher is doable and not overwhelming. Working at Joy has given me the opportunity to practice my skills as a teacher, in-regards to class management, lesson planning, and working with a co-teacher. It’s also a plus that I can enjoy my time as a teacher with an array of students from different ages to personalities.
 
WORKING WITH CHINESE TEACHERS/OTHER FOREIGN TEACHERS: The Chinese teachers are all very helpful in lesson planning and are more than generous in providing suggestions or feedback on classroom activities. Having a team of foreign teachers to bounce ideas off of each other is also a plus because we are all in the same position with similar needs and issues when it comes to teaching.
 
LIFE IN CHINA: Luoyang is definitely a nice place to settle in if you’re looking for a city-life without too much city hustle and bustle. Not knowing much Chinese is definitely an issue but there is always someone to help. Food is great and there’s definitely always something to do, either in Luoyang or in all of China, saying that it is a pretty big.
