Ok, here is the revised version. Thank you so much!!

Mrs. Wei is from Chengdu, China. She loves children and teaching. She became a full-time preschool teacher after graduating from Chengdu Normal School of Preschool Education. Since she also loves learning a foreign language and exploring new things, she earned a bachelor’s degree in English language and literature from Sichuan University, which helped her become an English teacher in China. She also has a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Sichuan Normal University. After over 10 years of teaching English in K-6 public schools, she was selected by the College Board to become a Chinese guest teacher going abroad teaching American children Chinese. She was proud of sharing her mother language and culture with them and decided to continue her teaching journey in the beautiful southern Utah area. This is Mrs. Wei’s fifth year at Santa Clara Elementary in a Chinese Dual Immersion program with two years of previous experience in the same program in Aurora, Colorado.

Mrs. Wei has a lovely daughter and a son. She loves to spend time with her husband and children, cook her favorite Chinese food, watch Disney movies, or go to the parks on a sunny day.
