Ms. Wu- Chinese
My name is Jingjing Wu. I have been a language teacher for 12 years. I have taught in elementary, middle and high schools in China, South Korea and the USA. I love being a teacher and have enjoyed teaching all levels and all cultural backgrounds. I have my masters in Curriculum and Instruction in Education from Cleveland State University. I am licensed in both Connecticut and Ohio, and am also IB certified by the International Baccalaureate Organization.
Before I came to Charter Oak, I taught at Lomond Elementary School, another IB school, in Shaker Heights, Ohio. My students and I were featured as the cover story for a Time for Kids Magazine in 2010 which highlighted their Chinese language and culture learning. How cool is that!
I came to Connecticut because of my husband’s job and am very excited to have the honor of joining Charter Oak and being able to teach in an IB school again! I truly believe the IB mission statement, to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect, and incorporate it into my own teaching.
