Welcome to 4th Grade!! 

    My name is Lijie Zhao, born and raised in a small town in northeast China. I was a textbook editor and a translator. Now I'm a teacher and a mother. I have an engineer husband and a chatterbox boy who is four and half. 
    I have a strong belief that every student is an achiever. Some are math geniuses; some are rising sport stars; some are computer gurus; some are passionate speakers; some are wonderful listeners; some are natural artists; some are mellow musicians; some are unbelievable cooks; some are outstanding performers. No matter what their dream is, this year I'm determined to walk with each of them one step closer to their dreams. Every day will be a day for them to be better than the day before. We will learn and grow together.
