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!
