Hi, I’m Russell, and I’m one of your teachers here.
I am from Canada, and my hometown is Toronto. I went to school at Royal
Military College of Canada, and York University, where I studied Psychology. My
first job as a teacher was at Binzhou Medical University in Yantai, Shandong
Province, where I stayed for two years. I enjoyed my work there very much, and
it’s where I developed a great love for China. My students in Yantai taught me
how exciting it can be to exchange stories and experiences about our communities
and our lives. After my time in Yantai, I spent one year in Toronto, teaching
English, writing curriculum, and teaching TESL (I taught over 80 teachers from
Canada, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, and Korea). Now, I have returned to Shanghai,
and I’m so looking forward to creating a space for dialogue here at Wall Street,
where we can share our stories!
I’m looking forward to hearing yours!
