Dr. Ling Xiao
I was born and grew up in Hunan Province, China. I went to Huazhong Normal University and received my bachelor’s degree in the English Language and Literature, something that really opened my mind to a different culture. After college, I taught English at a Chinese University. In the late 90s, I came to study for my Master's degree in second language acquisition at FSU and continued to pursue a doctorate in Instructional Systems. While studying at FSU, I taught various courses in Chinese and taught Educational Technology. I also did Teaching Assistant training. I have been teaching for Leon County Schools since 2006.
I have two children. Working with K-12 students and teaching my own children have been a great learning experience. I enjoy being a life-time learner. 活到老，学到老 (To live and to learn).
