Gubin grew up in Chongqing, China. She graduated from China Southwest Normal University, majoring in Chinese literature. She taught Chinese in public and private schools for eleven years before moving to the US in 2003. Her young children motivate her to explore even more about the way children like to learn. She is very happy when every child can focus on learning. Therefore, she sings, dances, plays games, uses sign-language and even makes funny faces in class! Her goal is to leave children nice memories about learning and growing, so they will consider schooling an enjoyable experience.
