Located in a loving home right off East Mercer Way surrounded by nature and peace. Easy drop-off and plenty of parking.
The classroom is organized with genuine Montessori materials. It is a calm space with open areas for the children to work.
I used to be a CPA working in the accounting field for thirty years. I have three children. After I had my youngest daughter at over the age of 50, with the enthusiasm of learning the latest early childhood education knowledge, I went to school and got my Washington State ECE Certificate. I have been working at Bright Horizon and Bellevue College Early Child Education Center for 6 months as a volunteer.
I believe children learn faster in a relaxed and happy environment with love and care. I like listening to the child, engaging in meaningful interaction with them and supporting children with challenging learning environments that encourage each child’s unique creativity. I enjoy seeing children learn through play.

I started my professional career as a journalist for The People’s Daily (national newspaper of China). After my first child was born in 2014, I changed my MBA program to Early Childhood Education. I truly enjoy spending time with children.
I began teaching at a Mercer Island Montessori school in 2016. I have passion and resources to positively impact children during the most important years of their development.
