Yunjun (Cassiel) Ban, 8th grade student from Shanghai

Cassiel joined us at the beginning of the New Year from Shanghai where her two siblings and parents resides. From her initial interview with me when she discussed wide ranging topics from US politics to personal goals, she impressed me with her precocious maturity and positively contagious attitude. From those conversations and to the moment she alertly came out of Chicago O'Hare airport, she exudes confidence and independence. I hope to continue to foster those attributes as well as add passion, compassion and most of all an infinite vision for herself, family, and many more in the world.

Cassiel, at this time, plans to pursue a business degree to eventually a become a globe-travelling investment or management professional. It is my genuine pleasure that I can become part of that vision as her teacher, mentor and cheerleader.

Step by step, I look forward to guiding her in the next 4 1/2 years.

Welcome, Cassiel!

Mr. Peter
