    My name is Caitlyn Connolly and I am teaching grade 2 at the Hongqiao Campus! This will be my fourth year at SCIS, and my second year teaching grade 2! I previously taught grade 1 for five years. I was born and raised in Oregon, which is a beautiful, green state in the Pacific Northwest of the US. I attended undergraduate school at Santa Clara University in California, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in History. I then went north to the University of San Francisco to receive my Master in Education. I lived and taught in the Bay Area for another four years, before taking a chance internationally and coming to SCIS! I love spending my free time playing Gaelic Football, practicing yoga, photography, reading, and traveling. I’m a huge coffee and chocolate enthusiast as well! I’ve really enjoyed my life in Shanghai these past three years and looking forward to what year four brings me!
