Posted on: Nov 28, 2019

The Centre for Chinese Studies is pleased to welcome a new visiting teacher, Ms. Jialun(Sharon)Zhong. She will work at the CCS as an instructor for Extension Chinese courses and also assist the CCS with Chinese culture projects and summer programs.

Sharon originally comes from Sichuan Province in southwestern China (no snow at all). She is excited to arrive in Edmonton on a snowy day and looks forward to starting her work at Concordia in a season full of joy and celebrations.

Sharon received her Bachelor Degree in Early Child Education from Northeast Normal University in China (ranks 3rd in China Normal Universities). She is currently doing her graduate studies in Early Child Education in Central China Normal University (ranks 4th in China Normal Universities). She has studied Chinese folk dance for 6 years.  She likes dance, music and photography. Chinese traditional culture has always enriched her life, and she looks forward to enriching the Chinese language and culture to the CUE community and beyond.

Warm welcome, Sharon!
