Prior to joining ELG, Daisy worked as a form teacher in a Shanghai public special education school for eight years, working with pre-school to primary school-aged children. While there, Daisy worked on rehabilitation programs for hearing impaired children providing speech and phonological training. She also participated in many scientific research projects in Shanghai and Huangpu District. Through her work, Daisy received many teaching honors at the national and city levels, including the first prize of China education and rehabilitation skills competition, and the third prize of Shanghai school mental health education research achievement.

Daisy believes that every child has the potential to make progress and embraces the uniqueness of every child. She emphasizes close cooperation with parents and other specialists to promote the child’s development. After becoming a mother herself, she has a deeper empathy for children and parents. She respects parents’ views and is committed to helping family members participate in their child’s progress. When working with children, Daisy is inspired by a Chinese poem she loves and integrates this principle in her work – “I learn best from and am impacted most by my personal struggles. Therefore, I will join with children in their struggles.” Helping children enjoy success and pleasure in communication through her professional services is Daisy’s greatest happiness.
