Hello! My name is Mrs. Alex Kay and I have the privilege of teaching Grade One this year at Guangzhou’s Canadian International School! My husband (Mr. Kay) and I moved here from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and we are excited for our new adventure in China! Back home I attended the University of Alberta and received my Bachelor of Arts in English and Creative Writing as well my Bachelor of Education specializing in elementary education. Despite graduating this year I’ve been able to spend a lot of time in a variety of classrooms through substitute teaching with the Elk Island School Board. This will be my first year teaching in my very own classroom and I am so excited to implement the programs and strategies I learnt back home. I’m also excited for all of the learning we are going to do in grade one! Grade one is an important year because our students move up more reading levels than in any other grade! See you in class!
你好！ 我叫Alex Kay，今年我有幸在广州的加拿大国际学校教授一年级！ 我的丈夫（Kay先生）和我从加拿大艾伯塔省埃德蒙顿搬到这里，我们为在这一段在中国的新冒险而感到兴奋！ 大学的时候，我在阿尔伯塔大学攻读，并获得了英语和创意写作的文学学士学位以及专门从事基础教育的教育学士学位。 尽管今年才毕业，但我有在 Elk Island School 里各种课堂上当代课老师的宝贵经历。这将是我在自己的课堂上教学的第一年，我很高兴能够运用我在加拿大学到的课程和策略方针。同时，我为将来一年能够与你们一起学习而感到兴奋！ 一年级是重要的一年，因为我们的学生的阅读水平提升的比其他任何年级都快！ 我们课堂见！
