Western Sierra Collegiate Academy
Mandarin Teacher
Roseville, California
Peggy Kao teaches Mandarin Chinese at Western Sierra Collegiate Academy in Rocklin, California.“Mrs. Kao is passionate about teaching Chinese. When I step into her classroom, I feel immersed in a Chinese cultural setting. In her classroom, there are parade dragons, lions for lion dances, Chinese calligraphy, posters, lanterns and students’ sample works all over the walls. I hear her students recite Chinese rhymes, sing Chinese songs and act out real life Chinese conversation. Mrs. Kao goes out of her her way to help her students get recognized, receive scholarships, and also find opportunities to study Chinese overseas. Mrs. Kao’s students meet 21st-century language standards: they learn to speak, read and write Chinese well and also have the opportunity to connect with the community and another side of the world.”
