Ming-Chi has a Bachelors of Education from Curtin University (Australia), a Master of Arts in Early Child Education from the University of Iowa, and has a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa, with Specialization in Early Childhood Education.

Ming-Chi first came to St. Cloud State University in August of 2000. She believes that the most important part of the Child and Family Studies program is the focus on child development. Ming-Chi explains, "All of the courses are built around that understanding." She also states that the department offers an excellent variety of field experiences.

Ming-Chi’s most rewarding experience at St. Cloud State University has been building relationships with classroom teachers for field experiences. She also enjoys teaching the students at the introduction level classes and watching their growth.

Areas of interest include: (1) Social-cultural perspective of young learners (particularly ELL) early school literacy learning and (2) Use of music as linguistic catalyst for second language learners.
