Peggy Lee, BA

Teacher

Peggy Lee is a native Mandarin Chinese and English speaker. She was born in Taiwan, immigrated to USA and then back to Taiwan after graduating from the University of Georgia with a BA. After spending 20 years in America and 20 years in Taiwan, Peggy has the ability to embrace both languages with fluency and can understand their cultures too.

Growing up in United States gave her a great understanding and firsthand experience of the local education system. In Taiwan she had worked at World of Disney in educational publishing. Later she was recruited to Saatchi & Saatchi advertising and then to Shangri-La Hotel as Guest Relation manger then Training manager. Prior to coming back to USA she was the head teacher at Wesley Kindergarten and their after school program for elementary students for 5 years.

Peggy’s highly developed communications, corporate staff training paired with her love for children allows her to transition easily into her role as an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher. She understands the challenges and nuances of children learning a second language and thus developed interesting and interactive programs that kept the children engaged and put the fun back into learning. Her beliefs in interacting with children in a gentle, loving, encouraging manner have resulted in students striving to reach their full academic and social potential, thus succeed in life.

Relocated to beautiful Austin 3 years ago with her family, she is now involved in teaching American children Chinese language with the same successful methods.
