Yan

I believe every individual has their own unique ways and capabilities as a learner.

I enjoy trying to see the world from the perspective of a child, learning through the eyes of a child inspires me to keep learning. In addition, I particularly love music, playing piano and dancing, and enjoy doing it in class with children as well.

My name is Yan. I am originally from Hong Kong, have lived in Hawaii and for the last several years, Japan. I have been teaching in all the three places and it has been 12 years now since I started my career in Early Childhood Education. I enjoy spending time with children. It gives me motivation and keeps me going when bonding with them, watching them grow and make progress, sharing moments and creating memories. I particularly love music, playing piano and dancing, and enjoy doing it in class with children as well!

I believe every individual has their own unique ways and capabilities as a learner. As an educator, I learn every day working with children, I believe it is a journey together. Keeping an open mind helps me along the way, I enjoy trying to see the world from the perspective of a child, learning through the eyes of a child inspires me to keep learning. There are moments that we could learn from each other. I think those moments are precious and that is why I chose to be an educator.

This is my first year in Summerhill, I am excited to meet with our learners and bring them exciting learning experiences in Sunset class!
