About Me

Welcome to a new school year and new adventure!  We are excited to start the year with you and your child! Here’s a little information about both of us so you can get to know us a little bit before we start the school year.

Miss Sundquist

Hello KA Rockstars! 

My name is Kelly Sundquist and I am excited to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher! While my home of record is Minnesota in the United States, I have moved around quite a bit as kid while my dad served in the military until I was in 6thgrade.  This is one of the reasons why I am passionate about TCKs (third culture kids). This is my first year at Shekou International School.  Prior to moving to Shenzhen, I taught for three years in Korea.  I have also taught in the United States and Qingdao, China.  

Overall, this is my 18th year as a teacher.  I have been a special education teacher, general education teacher, intervention teacher, reading specialist, and program coordinator & educational therapist.  I am very passionate about education~ how the brain works, phonics, teaching strategies, allowing students to show their skills at different rates and in different ways, expressing our emotions, and having students explore their surroundings in a comfortable learning environment through play, inquiry, and positive school relationships.   I hope you love to sing songs, dance, do crafty projects, and dress-up!  

I cannot wait to go on this great adventure with your children for the 2018-2019 school year! 

Kind Regards,

Kelly Sundquist
