Ge Song teaches Mandarin at all levels at Cate. She was born and raised in Northeast China and attended Chinese boarding school. She went on to study Chinese Language and Literature in college and earned a master’s degree in teaching Chinese to non-native speakers at Beijing Normal University. In the seven years that she spent in the program, she fell in love with teaching, linguistics, and cultures.
Ge began her journey teaching Mandarin in Thailand before moving on to the Hotchkiss School in Connecticut. It was there that Ge first fell in love with boarding school life. After that, she went back to China to teach at Dulwich College, Shanghai Pudong. While living in an environment where everyone speaks her native language can be comfortable, she truly missed the connections that are a part of boarding school life in the U.S. Ge soon returned to the U.S. and taught at Loomis Chaffee School in Connecticut.
She lives in Parsonage on the Mesa with her husband and their dog, Maple. She loves learning about people’s culture, cooking, and going to the beach.
