Stella Chen

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to 4th Grade Mandarin (4C) at Denver Language School! My name is Stella Chen and this will be my second year at DLS. This upcoming school year, I’ll be the homeroom teacher of the 4C class and will also be teaching Math and Science. I received my M.A in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics from Jilin University.

This year we will have various teachers teaching different subjects; Yewei Jiang (Language Arts/Social Studies), Sean McLaughlin (English), and Perla Lasater (Teacher’s Assistant). My team and I are all thrilled to be working together this year and with our dedication and your support, it will be a positive and productive school year for your child.

Our teaching assistant Perla graduated from Chienkuo Technology University with a B.S in Business Administration in Applied Foreign Languages. She has experience working with various grade levels and subjects from Early Childhood to high school, and obtained her Colorado Teaching License and Early Childhood Leadership Certificate. This is Perla’s first year at DLS!

I generally use email as my primary source of communication throughout the week, so please check for announcements, newsletters, etc. often and don’t hesitate to use it for questions or concerns throughout the year.

Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child this year!

Warm regards,

Stella Chen
