Dear Western Sierra students and families, 

Welcome to my classes. This is my fifth year teaching at Western Sierra. This year I teach 4 Mandarin courses and 2 Computer Science courses.
 
I am a native Mandarin speaker with a Bachelor degree of Chinese Language and Literature and a Master degree of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language. I also have a Master degree of Computer Science from University of Texas at Dallas. Teaching is enjoyable to me. Seeing students' success is very rewarding to me. 

Last year, my Mandarin class students produced good quality stories and books in Chinese. I would love to share with parents at the Back to School Night. The computer science class students produced excellent online games using Scratch, fun Robotics projects and beautiful web pages in HTML/CSS. Three students won 4th place at CodeWars competition hosted by HP. One Students took and passed AP Computer Science A tests. Here are the links to the Scratch game and Sumobot competition.
 
 
This year, I have classes in 4 classrooms. Here is the room arrangement for each period.
Period 1: room 131
Period 2: room 142
Period 3: room 128
Period 4 and Pack Time: my prep time
Period 5 & 6: room 230
ELT: room 230

I am looking forward to a fun and learning year.

Sincerely yours,
Ms. Tian
