Meet the teacher

Welcome! nǐ hǎo! My name is Maoli Du. I am a native Mandarin speaker and a certified Chinese teacher with over 10 years of teaching experience in America. I received my Bachelor’s degree from East China Normal University in Shanghai, China. After working in China for over 12 years, my family moved to the United States. I received my Master’s degree from Northern Kentucky University.  My teaching experience started with DE Chunhui Chinese School in 2010. Later, I worked for the Middlebury Interactive Languages as a DE remote Chinese teacher. I taught Mandarin across six public middle schools. In 2016, I became a Chinese teacher at Pennsville Memorial High School, where I had the opportunity to see four senior classes succeed and graduate. In fall 2020, I became a Chinese teacher at ASPIRA Academy. I am passionate about sharing the Chinese language and culture with students and look forward to a great year.
