TIS Welcomes Angela Whitebirch

This year we will add a second 5th grade Chinese class to the school. TIS would like to introduce our new teacher, Angela Whitebirch! Angela moved to Oregon in 2014 from China, where she spent years teaching English in Hangzhou and Chongqing. Some of you might remember Angela, as she volunteered in Yu Min’s 4th grade classroom when she first arrived to the United States. She most recently was a Mandarin Immersion Teacher for Knowledge Universe.

  • Pursuing a Master’s Degree at Portland State University
  • BA in Business English (Honors) – Pass College of Chongqing Technology and Business University – Chongqing, China
  • National Encouragement Scholarship Recipient – Ministry of Education in Chongqing, China

Welcome, Angela!

Full profiles and photos of our new faculty and staff will be posted on the TIS Website by the end of the week.
