Biography of Betty Ma

“Early childhood education is not only a job but also a mission with the vision of lightening up their potential”.

Hello, I am Ma Hong(Betty), from Xi'an, Shaanxi province. I hold a Bachelor degree in Education and obtained a Master’s degree in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language from the Education University of Hong Kong in 2017.

I am passionate about teaching, I have worked as a Chinese teacher in different international schools in the United States, Mainland China and Hong Kong. The teaching experience of students from different countries has helped me learn that every student is unique and has their own pace and developmental needs in various stages. So I should follow the child’s lead and help them to reach their potential.

The role of the teacher is to make learning fun. My style of teaching encompasses inquiry and fun classroom activities and encourages interactivity and high student participation, which brings enthusiasm and happiness into the classroom to provide children a positive learning environment.

Outside of school, I enjoy outdoor sports, hiking, scuba-diving and swimming. I also enjoy travelling, because I can bring the experience back to the classroom, to build the background knowledge of my students.
