Huai-chi Yu, a senior high school teacher who teaches Chinese literature, is a “Fairy Godmother” to her students. Yu had never attended senior high school in her teens, but somehow ended up as a computer programmer. At the age of 23, she finally attended college, and found herself immersed in Chinese literature.
Once Yu started teaching, she realized that she is good at group teaching, course design, and interdisciplinary teaching methods. In her class, students are always enthusiastic and expressive, full of laughter and vitality. She believes that “literature is not only meant for appreciating and analyzing; it can also help solve problems in life.” Her teaching techniques have integrated life education with Chinese literature so that lessons from classroom to real life are easily incorporated to society.
This “Fairy Godmother” was presented with the Super Teacher Award in 2014. To her, instilling her students with warm hearts is the right education.
