BRIGHT LEARNING ACADEMY
INQUIRY BASED • FOREIGN LANGUAGE
Thank you for entrusting us with your most valuable asset, your children, our children. We appreciate your choice to join the big family at Bright Learning Academy. Our teachers and staff are committed to ensuring that all children will receive a quality education in a safe and nurturing environment. We envision a school that values multiculturalism, embraces the whole child, and celebrates the curiosity of children.
We strongly believe that when children are immersed in a foreign language environment and acquire it naturally, it can stimulate new areas of their mind, strengthen the brain's natural ability to focus, and help the children develop a global mindset.
About the Director
Jialing Hsu is the co-founder and director of Bright Learning Academy. She and her family are proud residents of Norcross and Peachtree Corners. As a veteran bilingual and early childhood educator, Jialing realized a strong need in the local community for a quality early learning center that would merge inquiry-based and foreign language learning into a balanced curriculum, hence the birth of BLA. She is excited to lead BLA and support positive growth in children, families, and the community.
Jialing holds a Master of Education degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Georgia. She also has experience in both overseas and American education systems. For the past 13 years, she has been proud to serve as a pre-kindergarten teacher in Dunwoody. Before her position in Dunwoody, she worked as an elementary and certified middle school English teacher overseas in Taiwan. Her entire family shares her educational values and passion. Her husband Anthony is the Chinese Program Director at a Public Charter School in Atlanta. She also credits her daughter and son as being the ‘teachers” who truly opened her eyes to real-life child development.
