Co-Teacher: The Fawns

After generously volunteering at the Middle Way for the latter half of 2020-2021, Yinan returned in 2021-2022 as Co-Teacher with Gillian Eames for the 3, 4, and 5 year-olds of the Fawns class. Yinan brings so much warmth, expertise, and wry humor to Middle Way and we are delighted by her presence on campus. It’s also delightful that her son Alfred is in the Snow Lions this year.

The wisdom of childhood never fails to amaze and humble me. I feel full of life when working with children, where I can witness and support their journey in discovering themselves and the world around them.

After earning degrees in Environmental Conservation and Early Childhood Education, I served as a lead teacher at Forest Explorers at the Queens Botanical Garden, as well as an assistant teacher at my son’s preschool in Thailand. 

Being a part of the Middle Way School community is dreamy and empowering. I found a place where my passion in reimagining education and connecting children with nature can settle harmoniously with this compassionate community.
