道尔顿学院现任教师介绍(部分) Dalton Present Faculty Introduction (Some)

 

Jesse Field

个人资料:在1998年,我进入哈佛大学的第一年,我选修了化学,物理,和以难著称的数学25课程。理论数学曾经是我最喜欢的科目,至少我以前这么认为。但是到年末的时候,我决定申报地球和行星科学专业。在那里,我学到关于构造地质学,海洋学流体动力学,大气化学,尤其是空气污染和气候变化的一切。我的未来里好像会有一个科学方面的博士学位 ,至少我当时这么认为。但是在我2002年毕业的时候,我被中国的一切迷住了,历史,社会,文化,语言,哲学,艺术,尤其是文学,都在我尝试着想象中国是什么样的地方的时候,在我的脑海中变的生动起来。所以我放弃了科学,在亚洲研究方面取得了硕士学位。我开始在中国学习,并寻找在这里旅行和生活的机会。现在我在北京,在这里我在休息时间读书,并和这座城市的艺术家和作家交流。尽管北京有美中不足的地方,但我真的很热爱这座城市和它的居民,尤其是在这所学校中的年轻人。

Bio: In 1998, my freshman year at Harvard University, I took courses in chemistry, physics, and the notorious Math 25. Mathematics in its purest form was my favorite subject, or so I thought. But by the end of the year, I had decided to declare a concentration in a department called Earth and Planetary Sciences. There, I learned all about things like structural geology, oceanography and fluid dynamics, and atmospheric chemistry, especially the study of air pollution and climate change. A PhD in science seemed in my future, or so I thought. But by the time I graduated in 2002, I was enthralled with all things China. History, society, culture, language, philosophy, art and — especially — literature all came to vivid life in my mind when I tried to imagine what kind of place or idea or dream China was. So I gave up science altogether and got a master's degree in Asian studies. I began to study Chinese and look for opportunities to travel and live and work in the Chinese-speaking world. Now I'm in Beijing where I spend my free time reading and hanging out with the city's artists and writers. Despite its flaws, I really love this city and its citizens, especially the young people all around the campus.

David Lasson

个人资料:大卫·拉森在费城与波士顿长大,大学时代在加州度过,并在德州读研。他与世界各大机构有紧密的联系,如麻省大学(戏剧艺术)、加州大学伯克利分校(本科英语)、德州大学奥斯汀分校(硕士英语)、意大利特兰托大学(文学讲师)、纽约城市大学(威斯文理学院,文学讲师)、国家艺术与人文基金会(两次访问学者职位),丰富的工作经验将他带进了北大附中,这个与世界一流大学——北京大学相连的学校。两年前他在佛蒙特州的明德学院,努力学习了中文(虽然可能不太够)。

在空闲时间里,他很喜欢参加在国家大剧院(巨蛋)、保利剧院、中山音乐厅举办的音乐活动。

David Lasson grew up in Philadelphia and Boston, went to college in California, and to graduate school in Texas. His association with large, public institutions, such as the University of Massachusetts, where he studied Theatre Arts; UC Berkeley (BA, English); UT Austin (MA, English); The University of Trento, Italy (Instructor in Literature); The City University of New York (Weissman School of Arts and Sciences Lecturer in Literature); and the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities (two visiting scholar positions), drew him Bei Da Fu Zhong, associated, as it is, with one of the world's most famous public universities. Two summers ago he studied Chinese intensively--though perhaps not intensively enough--at (the most undoubtedly small and most certainly private) Middlebury College in Vermont.

When not at work, he enjoys attending musical events in Beijing at the National Center for the Performing Arts (the "Egg"), The Poly Theatre, and The Forbidden City Concert Hall.

马继云老师 Ma Jiyun

个人资料:我在本校已经当了六年物理老师,并从去年开始在道尔顿工作。我发现道尔顿的学生都非常的贴心、聪明、可爱。我希望我可以与你们谈论你们的所见所闻,并与你们分享快乐,共同克服困难。我非常高兴作如下简短的自我介绍,让你们了解一些关于我的信息。

我来自山东省。我小时候有一个当科学家的梦想,随着时间的推移,我上了大学,然后去了中国物理研究院。在我毕业之后,我发现科学家和教授已经太多了,于是我希望我能够做一位高中的物理老师。

我是一位和蔼、适应性强并且热心的人,但是我对于原则问题还是非常严肃的。我很喜欢旅行,可遗憾的是我没有充足的时间,因为我把这些精力放在照顾儿子身上。我很喜欢摄影,可是我不喜欢那么重的单反相机。我的大部分空闲时间都用来陪我的孩子逛公园,用较轻的数码相机给他拍照。

Bio: I have been a Physics teacher at our school for 6 years, and began working at Dalton last year. I found that Dalton students are so sweet, so smart, and so cute. I wish I can talk with you about all the news of yourself, and share the happiness and difficulties with you. To let you know something about me, I am glad to make a brief self-introduction as following.

I am from Shandong province. When I was a child, I had a dream to be a scientist. As time went on, I went to university and then to the Physics Institute of China. When I graduated, I found that there are too many scientists and professors, so I wish I can to become a high school physics teacher instead.

I am a kind, well-disposed, warm-hearted person, but I am also serious in matters of principle. I like to travel but don’t have enough time because I am the mother of a boy. I like taking photographs, but I hate the digital single lens reflex because it's so heavy. Most of my free time is used to go around the parks with my son, and take photographs for him with a light digital card camera.

T. Nagarajan

个人资料:我的名字是T.Nagarajan,来自印度。我先后学习了数学经济计量学,计算机科学与应用,以及教育学。最近,我完成了我的经济学硕士学位并准备在2015年六月份开始完成我的学士(法律)学位。我对于学习和教授数学有着很大的激情,这是我从事教育行业的第20年了。在来北京之前,我在香港教书,而在那之前,我在不丹和印度尼西亚教书。我曾经指导学生为他们的高等教育选择学科专业,锻炼他们的专长,走上正确的教育发展道路。

这些机会为我创造了很多经历,这些经历让我可以为学生提供独立思考能力和创造性解决问题的能力。我将自己定位为在课堂上发展我学生的阅读、写作和口语交流能力的数学语言老师并努力工作着。

每个假期都是为我们(我的家庭)旅游而准备的。这个夏天我们去了印度的内陆,探索并享受那里舒适惬意的气候和辛辣可口的食物。我们有一个机会去观赏Thiruvananthapuram Raja(国王)的宫殿。我们还去了很多在北印度闻名世界的热门遗址,比如Taj 宫殿,Hawa 宫殿,Udaipur 宫殿。

在中国,作为ELP项目的一部份,我们已经去了一些实行英语计划的医学院,分别在武汉,上海,广州,杭州,北京和扬州。下个假期,我们计划在迷人的中国里更深入的探索。

我对于在道尔顿学院中工作感到非常兴奋,我会分享我的知识和经历,同时我也在向你们学习。

Bio: My name is T. Nagarajan, from India. I studied Mathematical Econometrics for my post-graduation followed by a Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Science and Application with a degree in Education (B.Ed). Recently I finished my M. Phil Degree in Economics and going to complete my LLB (Law) degree in June 2015. I am passionate about teaching and learning mathematics. This is my 20th year of teaching. Before coming to Beijing, I taught in Hong Kong and prior to that in Bhutan and in Indonesia. I have been guiding my students in choosing subjects for Higher education, playing to their strength and the right education career path.

These opportunities have created a vast experience which I am providing to my students to develop their independent thinking skills and creative problem-solving skills. I work as a Mathematics language teacher, developing my students reading, writing and speaking skills in class.

Every vacation is meant for travelling for us (my family).This summer we travelled to the inner parts of India,exploring and enjoying the pleasant weather and spicy food.We had an opportunity to visit the palace of the Thiruvananthapuram Raja(king).We also visited world popular heritages like Taj Mahal,Hawa Mahal,Udaipur palaces in North India.

In China,we have visited the Medical schools(which run English Language programmes)of Wuhan,Shanghai,Guangzhou,Hangzhou,Beijing and Yangzhou as part of ELP trips.For the next vacation,we have planned to explore fascinating China further.

I am excited to work at Dalton Academy and share my knowledge and experience,while learning from you all.

Silvia Perdiguero

个人资料:我沉醉于学习并且渴望了解一切事物。我认为我是一个天生的全职老师和学生。好奇心使我元气满满,并帮助我在西班牙(我的原籍国)、爱尔兰、匈牙利、比利时、肯尼亚和中国等许多国家精力充沛地工作。作为一个专业的背包客,我会利用假期时间来旅行,寻找新的事物和放声大笑。

Bio: Addicted to learning and eager to know about everything, I consider myself a natural born 24/7 teacher and student. My curiosity made me live and work in many different countries such as Spain (my home country) Ireland, Hungary, Belgium, Kenya and now China, among others. As a professional backpacker, I spend my holidays travelling, discovering and laughing (my favourite sport).


Peter Petite

个人资料:我在纽约城出生,并在四岁时随我的家庭一起搬到了纽约北部的一个小村庄。我从幼儿园直到高中都在同一所学校上学(实际上在同一栋楼)

在毕业离开学校之后,我在美军特种部队度过了四年。我的学术生涯从那里开始了。我曾在小型私立学院(伦敦国王学院)、州立大学(纽约州立大学帕切斯分校)以及研究型大学(耶鲁大学和宾夕法尼亚大学),甚至位于加拿大的麦克马斯特大学就读。在美国,我的教学生涯也同样包括在小型私立学校和大型公立学校授课。

我的户外兴趣为攀岩、野营、滑雪(向下滑坡并直穿场地)、划船、玩壁球、保龄球以及打网球。我同样也是一个热爱读书的人,最喜欢的书是圣经。我最喜欢的故事是唐吉珂德,紧接着是魔戒。此外,我最喜欢的现代小说是约翰·欧文的为欧文·米尼祈祷。在2008年奥巴马的竞选总统活动中,我作为一个全职的志愿者,在他被选举前停留于夏洛特竞选办事处时,有幸与他见面。

今年夏天,就像你们了解的那样,参与这次活动是我自从迁至到中国后第一次回美国。我参观了15所学校,他们大多数为小型的文科类学院(SLACs),也同样包括耶鲁大学、华盛顿大学。参观这些学校是一次精彩而有趣的经历,但这次活动的目的是向这些学院和大学介绍并帮助他们对我们学校有更好的了解。我期待着几个月后能看到令人满意的申请结果!

Bio: I was born in New York City and lived there until about the age of four, when my family moved to a small village just north of the City. I attended the same public school (the same building, in fact) from kindergarten through my senior year.

After graduating from high school, I spent four years in the military, with the U.S. Army Special Forces. From there, my academic career began, which has included small private colleges (King's College), state universities (SUNY Purchase), private research universities (Yale and Penn), and even a Canadian University (McMaster). My teaching career has also included very small private schools and large public schools in the United States.

My outside (outdoor) interests include rock climbing and camping, skiing (downhill and cross country) sailing, squash, rowing and tennis. I also am an avid reader. My favorite book is the Bible. My favorite story is Don Quixote, followed closely by Lord of The Rings. Additionally, my favorite modern novel is John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany. I was also a full-time volunteer for the Obama campaign in 2008 and had the privilege of meeting him in North Carolina the night before he was elected, as he stopped by the Charlotte campaign office.

Over the summer, as many of you know, I was in the States for the first time since moving to China. I visited fifteen schools, mostly small liberal arts colleges ("SLACs"), but also Yale and University of Washington. Visiting these schools was a wonderful and interesting venture. The purpose of it, though, was to introduce our school to these colleges and universities, or to make it better known to them. I hope to see good results over the coming months!

张璐鸥老师 Zhang Luou

个人资料:我叫张璐鸥,出生于广州,曾经在美国和中国的超过25个主要城市居住过。这个不同寻常的经历给了我了解不同地区丰富的文化、学科及思想的机会。因此在成长的过程中,我总会把一些看似不相关的领域联系起来,从而改善人们的生活。我曾在杜克大学就读本科。在那里,我把大部分的精力投入到了经济学、艺术(舞蹈及电影)和创业中。在杜克大学学习经济学的这段时间,我把我的热情投入到了经济学的一个分支——行为经济学。这是心理学和经济学的结合,专注于研究感性和理性因素对人们做决定的影响。同时,我也和杜克大学的舞蹈团在中国巡演(现代舞、嘻哈和中国民族舞)。这使我感受到舞蹈与科技的结合,可以让艺术更加引人入胜、鼓舞人心。

毕业后,我在香港在Bain & Company担任管理顾问。在那里,我和一些全世界规模最大的企业商讨复杂的竞争策略,包括消费市场、资金等等。我在那里担任了一年顾问,后来在2012年,我来到北京创办了自己的体验式教育。我的创业项目叫做理想,专注于通过科技、人文、自然方面的引导性的活动和研讨会,来培养人们未知的潜能,比如自我认知(了解更多请点击http://arts.duke.edu/artsjournal/duke-students-bring-summer-dance-camp-china )。近期,我更专注于研究创造力、教育和领导力间的关系,并经营了咨询事务所。我们通过专业的企业管理知识和有创造力的设计过程来帮助人们创建创新、文化领域的公司。我在艺术、商业和学术界的经历使我对怎样拥有令人满足的生活有着独特的见解,这使我希望能够告诉他人不要简单地追求财富,而是追求生活的丰富。

Bio: I'm Zhang Luou, and I was born in Guangdong but moved over 25 times in my life across many major cities in United States and China. This unique opportunity gave me the chance to experience many culture, subjects, and perspectives various the different communities that I have lived in. Thus growing up, I was always eager to combine seemingly unrelated fields together to improve people's lives. I studied at Duke University for my undergrad, where I spent my time mostly on economics, art (dance+film), and entrepreneurship. While studying economics at Duke University, I focused my interest on a branch of economics called "behavioral economics", which is a combination of psychology and economics that looked at the emotional and rational factors that influences how people make decisions. Also during my time at Duke, I have danced (modern, hip hop, and Chinese folk dance) with the Duke dance troupe across China and experimented with combining technology with dance to make arts more engaging and inspiring.

After graduating, I worked for Bain & Company as a management consultant in Hong Kong, where I worked with some of the biggest companies in the world on difficult business issues on competitive strategy, consumer marketing, finance, and other projects. I worked as a consultant for about a year before moving to Beijing to start my own experiential education startup in 2012. The startup was called IDEAS and it focused on using guided activities and workshops in technology, humanities, and nature to nurture non-cognitive skills such as self awareness. (more on that here: http://arts.duke.edu/artsjournal/duke-students-bring-summer-dance-camp-china). More recently, I am looking closer at the intersection of creativity, education, and entrepreneurship, where I run a consulting practice that helps start up companies in the creative and cultural industries grow by combining the science of business management/strategy and the art of the creative design process. My many experiences and conversations in art, business, and academics have gave me some unique insights on how to lead a fulfilling life, which I hope to help others to not simply strive to be rich in life -- but be enriched in life.

张婷老师 Zhang Ting

个人资料:我毕业于丹佛大学,主修专业是国际问题研究,同时兼修哲学。我曾经为一家杂志社做了两年的记者和编辑。我是J.R.R.托尔金(《指环王》的作者)和刘慈欣(《三体》的作者)的超级粉丝,所以如果你也对科幻小说感兴趣,欢迎你找我畅谈!我热爱旅游,且钟情于布鲁塞尔的风光。我愿意加入(或成立)学校的天文观察队,专注于研究流星雨和小行星。

Bio: I was graduated from University of Denver, with a major in international studies and philosophy. I was a magazine journalist and editor for 2 years. I’m a huge fan of J. R. R. Tolkien (who wrote The Lord of The Rings) and Liu Cixin (who wrote The Three Bodies), so if you are interested in fantasy or SciFi literature, let's talk! I like to travel a lot, and love the scene of Brussels deeply. I would like to join (or build) a team of astronomical observation in the school, focusing on meteor showers and asteroids.
