Ms. Yanan Tao

Hello! I am Ms. Tao (陶老師) and I teach 2nd grade Mandarin and Social Studies. I was a certificated teacher in China, and I came to America for graduate school. My family and I moved to Bay Area in 2015, and I absolutely love here. Mandarin is challenging for many reasons, but learning and having fun can be at the same time and I am here to help. In my classroom, I have high expectations and believe every student has the ability to succeed and grow. It is always a joy to witness children's growth and progress throughout the year. In my spare time, I enjoy reading to my two boys, watching soccer games and traveling with my families and friends.
