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

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.
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。
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.
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).
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!

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.

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.
