The Affiliated High School of Peking University's Dalton Academy
Dr. Huang Xiaojuan
Dr. Huang Xiaojuan joined Dalton Academy five years ago. We are thankful that she decided to embark with us on this meaningful journey of transforming education. A devoted educator, Dr. Huang truly understands our students’reality as she also graduated from The Affiliated High School of Peking University. She has an incredible academic background: Master’s degree completed at Peking University and a Ph.D. at Princeton University. Dr. Huang has lived abroad for a total of ten years (the United States and Canada). She also worked in France, Italy, and Belgium as a visiting scholar and a postdoctoral fellow focusing her research for a year on religious and social history in pre-modern China. We are extremely fortunate to count Dr. Huang among our faculty members. Not only does she passionately share her rich knowledge with our students but she also incorporates project-based learning into her Chinese Liberal Arts classes so students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills. These meaningful projects help students define their cultural identity but also bolster their knowledge as it pertains to their cultural heritage.
