TLE: 2021-22

“你好 (ni hao, hello!) I am Lily, and my Chinese name is 曹芷瑄(Chih-Hsuan Tsao). I am from Taiwan, a beautiful island located in the western Pacific Ocean. I majored in English and also studied Russian and German languages. Before coming to Carthage, I won the Fulbright Scholarship in 2018 and went to the U.S. to teach Mandarin in Washington. I have a huge passion for languages, and I am excited to share the beauty of languages with students and introduce Taiwanese culture. I believe Carthage will empower me with my teaching skills with ongoing M.Ed courses. See you all in the classroom!”
