Fanfan is also known as Zou lao shi (“Teacher Zou”) to students. She is a native Chinese speaker who grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. After years working as a magazine editor in Taiwan, Fanfan put her French degree to work and studied cultural mediation in France. She also worked as an artist’s assistant and a docent at Palais de Tokyo in Paris. After Paris, Fanfan worked not only as a trilingual translator and a design journalist, but also an English and French teacher in Taiwan. Her varied, firsthand experiences around the world have lead Fanfan to believe in the Montessori method. She would like to pass on the passion for learning and worldly curiosity she gained in her own studies to her students. To that end, she strives to create a class environment that encourages students to apply their own interests as avenues for learning Chinese.
