Name: Jake Gill/ 高健
Bio: Managing the Skritter team and helping teachers bring Skritter into classrooms worldwide.
Language Learning Background: I’ve been studying Chinese for a little less than a decade. I earned a minor in Chinese from UW-Milwaukee after 5 years (and 56 credits) worth of language classes. During undergrad I spent two semesters in Taipei, Taiwan and one in Beijing, China. After graduation I returned to China for a six-week K-12 Chinese teacher training program before spending another two years at National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) completing my master’s coursework in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL) and working as a distance-learning language teacher. I still study Chinese in my free time and I’m also working on improving my (very limited) Cantonese.
Extra: Apart from work you’ll most likely find me enjoying sci-fi novels, riding my bike, and working on amassing a giant collection of Magic: the Gathering cards (in Chinese of course)!
