Bio

Hello ETAs!

I am Carly Lin, the Changhua ETA program Coordinator. I joined Fulbright Taiwan this year and it is my pleasure to welcome you to come to Changhua. I graduated with the major of Early Childhood Education and minor of English instruction. I had also stayed in North Carolina as an Au Pair and studied in Montana. With the experiences as an educator and lived abroad, I know how important education meant to children and how great your role will be.

Changhua might be a small county but you will be amazed about how hospitality the people around here!
