CB1 – Ms. Ma
I started teaching Cantonese Beginner 1 (CB1) at CSGW in 2013. I have wanted to be a kindergarten teacher ever since I was a child and teaching at CSGW gave me the opportunity to fulfill my childhood dream. I was born in Hong Kong and Cantonese is my first language. I want to help the kids learn and gain interest in Cantonese language and Chinese culture through different class activities such as singing songs, playing games, and telling stories. In my free time, I enjoy cooking and watching tv.
CB2 – Ms. Chan
Hi! I am Ms. Chan, the CB2 and art teacher at CSGW. I am a native Cantonese speaker from Hong Kong. I have been teaching at CSGW since 2013. I have a passion for teaching Cantonese and culture to children. I really enjoyed seeing my students every Sunday and helping them learn to speak Cantonese. I like to help my students learn through games, listening to stories, and speaking in daily conversations. I believe children are our future and I want to be part of it.
CB3 – Mrs. Ng
