Born and raised with Russian-Armenian values Jasmine has adopted cross-cultural communication as core of her living, which led her to do her MA in international Relations. Passion toward cultures and languages grew into another MA degree in Cross Cultural Studies in California. To have legal perspective of Eastern and western values for better integration in the era of Globalization opened another research sphere for her, bringing her and her family to China in 2012.Working as Director of Operations in Experimental Educational Complex under Ministry of Education and as Administrative manager at DHL Express Jasmine could realize teaching through sharing what is personal could have enormous power of changing hearts and minds toward being more loving of different cultures. Since 2014 Jasmine is fully involved in sharing her professional experience and knowledge through teaching and training in multicultural settings. She confesses teaching to be an amazing dynamic process of self-discovery, where everyone has to go through to determine their life purpose. CQFLS students are quite amazing in doing this. Despite being so young, they already know where they stand and what they want to do in their lives.
“I always tell my students “You get to fly high so you may explore more, but you have to get down to the nest to rest, to get blessed and bless others through strong values that you hold as Chinese citizens”.

厚重的文化底蕴使人向上——As I was thinking about the opportunity of joining the International Department of # 8 Middle School, first I came to see the legacy the school has in the minds and hearts of locals, giving generations of talented and smart individuals who excel themselves to give it back to the country which makes them who they are; honest, hardworking, confident and loving. Second, I thought what a unique place it is where you can “give through being refilled so you can give again”. Through short period of interactions, I could already feel the blessings.
