About Your Teacher

Ms. Qiang Ma

MaGreetings and welcome to 1st grade classroom!

I would like to tell you a little about myself.  I was born and raised in Harbin, China.  I received my first Bachelor and Master degrees in English from Jilin University.  After teaching English at Jilin University for two years, I moved to America in Jan, 1989.  I got my second Bachelor Degree in Computer Science from Siena Heights University, Adrian, Michigan, and second Master Degree in Computer Science from University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.  I worked nine years as a software engineer.  I received my teaching credential from San Jose State University.  For the past sixteen years, I have been teaching 4th grade and 1st grade here at Forest Park Elementary.

I am delighted to be teaching first grade at Forest Park this year.  I look forward to an exciting year of discovery, exploration, success, and friendship.
