Lǎoshī (Ms. Harper)

Middle School Mandarin

Nǐ hǎo! (Hello)

My name is Shih-Ping Harper and I am a native Mandarin speaker from Taiwan. When I teach in class, I prefer students calling me “ Wú lǎoshī ”. Wú is my maiden name and lǎoshī means teacher. This is a good Chinese culture lesson for your child to understand that a student addresses his/her teacher by her last name plus “ Wú lǎoshī ”. For my educational background, I have a Masters in Education from Loyola University Maryland and a MAT in teaching Foreign Languages from Kennesaw State University.

During my leisure time, I enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures. I am thrilled to be a part of the ICSAtlanta community and I cannot wait to start my new journey here.

Looking forward to a great year !
