Hello, students, parents and colleagues，I'm Miss Song Liang, deputy director of the primary school department. I'm honored to be featured as the focus of this issue of Gardener's Portrait. I grew up gradually under the cultivation of Xiehe.
The concept of "Unity in Diversity, Success through Collaboration" gives me the opportunity to be more bold when I was a newly-qualified teacher. As long as I "teach carefully", I can develop in my own pedagogies and practice。This is something very precious for a young person with "educational ideals". More than ten years have passed. In this hot land, I have witnessed my growth within this wonderful organization. With Xiehe's trust and confidence in me, I hope to raise the flag of "educational ideals" with more teachers. We always believe in norms that everything is "student-oriented" and "caring is the heart of education".
Song Liang and I are colleagues and partners for many years. We used to teach a class together -she taught English and I taught Chinese. At that time, as a head teacher, I often sat in the classroom listening to her class and was always magnetically drawn to her teaching. Miss Song is a beautiful teacher. The beauty here is not only because of her elegant appearance, but also because her classroom is always charming. She carefully cultivates a lively and interesting classroom, pays attention to the children's English language literacy, and lets the children devote themselves to the English learning course. Miss Song is a wise teacher. She has exercised her excellent bilingual communication skills in her long-term English teaching and research work.
Her work as a grade leader and discipline leader has cultivated her excellent coordination and cooperation ability. In the long-term cooperation between Chinese and foreign teachers in Xiehe, Mr. Song's ability to understand and integrate Chinese and Western cultures is also improving. She is a teacher with excellent professional quality and strong interdisciplinary and cross-cultural comprehensive ability.
This year, Miss Song joined Xiehe Qingpu as a new director of moral education in the primary school department, and ushered in new challenges。Facing the fatiguing and complicated work every day, she can always be relied upon to calmly cooperate with Chinese and foreign teachers. She loves children so much and focuses on students’ healthy growth , She always devotes herself to all activities of the school with wisdom, patience and enthusiasm .

I have found it a perfect delight to work with Michelle. Her people management skills are exceptional. She is releasing of talent and encouraging of those who are struggling. She is very organized and as a result, communication is clear and the expectations are also clear and manageable. Michelle is always open to negotiating conditions and terms without giving way on the overall vision. She is very approachable and pleasant to talk to. She is energic and has a calming presence. Her ‘can do’ attitude allows her to take the team forward into new areas exploring possibilities. She is not frighted by failure but sees it as a springboard for improvement. My team has greatly benefitted from her leadership and are looking forward to continuing the journey in the future.
Ms Song in my eyes is an "expert in education", No matter how busy she is, she is still full of passion for front-line teaching. Whenever she talks about teaching, she always has inexhaustible energy. Ms. Song is both a good teacher and a good friend in my heart。She always keeps a bright smile and always brings peace of mind and warmth to the people around her. She can resonate with us and give us spiritual comfort. You once said a good team will make everyone happy. I want to say we will be happy because of you.
"In life, there is always unexpected warmth and endless hope." If I use three key words to describe Mr. Song, it must be "charming", "professional" and "efficient". The first time I saw her was attracted by Miss Song's professional guiding charm. In the process of interdisciplinary learning with her, she always answers all the questions of my non-English teacher in time, which makes me feel the interlinkage between disciplines. Miss Song will carefully consider the confusion you may encounter in the work of the head teacher, give you active guidance and help, and help you solve problems efficiently.
Professionalism and passion are the two qualities I would use to describe Ms Song in her professional capacity. Miss. Song is a leader who is good at discovering the strengths and advantages of teachers in her leadership work. In the preparatory work for the Youth Congress, the work arrangement from top to bottom was clear and reasonable. In the process of each work exchange, she always gives us encouraging strength, affirmation and help. She is often busy in every corner of the campus, nevertheless she can always maintain an optimistic and positive working state.
