Hello, my name is David Lawrance Adams and I am the Head of Department of the Kindergarten at The Canadian International School of Hefei.  I am originally from Plattsburgh, New York and graduated from Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont.  I have lived and worked in Hefei for the past 14 years working in both private and public educational institutions, mostly working with young learners.  I have worked as a teacher, a teacher trainer, a Director of Studies, and an administrator.  Since coming to Hefei, I have continued my studies in working through a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, a Diploma in TESOL from Trinity College, and a Certificate from HEI Schools on Play-Based Learning.  I plan on continuing my studies as a life-long learner to be able to offer as much as possible to our students and teachers

Most of my free time is spent with my family.  My wife is from Hefei and we have two young boys aged 8 and 3, who are both studying at CISH.  Together, we enjoy hiking, cooking, going on picnics, and watching baseball.  My wife is my Chinese teacher and I have even been able to learn some of the local Hefei dialect in addition to Mandarin.

I have been with the Canadian International School for 1 year and I look forward to many years in the future working with the talented team here to provide the very best education possible for our youngest learners.  Looking forward, we will strive to continue developing our kindergarten to be a safe, fun place that positively grows our students as individuals.
