Back to Who We are

Biography of Guo Waiping

I entered an amazing stage of my life when I became a mother in 2007! One day my son asked me "why are you a teacher?" I told him, "because I love children!" My answer to him was short, but I have spent my entire life researching, learning and teaching children. Now, my son is 9 years old and is studying in CIS.

I have entered the twentieth year of my teaching career. I have experience as a Chinese Co-ordinator, as a teacher from secondary school to primary school and from kindergarten to playgroup. I enjoy each and every moment of teaching, and have learned so much along the way and I'm still learning today.

I always strive to further my understanding of children and have continued to study throughout my career, from QKT (Qualified Kindergarten Teacher) to a Masters of Education. I am still eager to learn and to further my knowledge.

In my twenty year teaching career, I have come to understand that there must be healthy interaction between teachers, children and parents; the community as a whole nurtures our children. I look forward to us working together to develop a deeper understanding of "the hundred languages" of children towards a brighter, happier future.
