Disney World Comes To Country Day- Ms. Xu


Ms. Zu at Disney World

What if your new teacher was one of five selected out of 82 million people in a province in China to work at Walt Disney World as a cast member? Well, I guess those taking Mandarin classes this year are lucky to have one of these five people teach them. Ms. Xu’s passion in life is to help students understand the labyrinth of the Chinese language. Her favorite movie is Mission Impossible starring the wonderfully handsome Tom Cruise. The inspiration to become an educator came from a tutoring session with a young boy who told Ms. Xu that he wished for her to become his teacher. The ultimate goal of Ms. Xu is to give her students a strong foundation in Mandarin so that those in her class can communicate and understand the Chinese language with ease.
