China started her teaching career as a Seventh- and Eighth-Grade Math and Science Teacher at Sol Aureus College Preparatory in Sacramento, California, where she taught for six years. She is currently attending Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education, where she is a doctoral candidate in two programs: Curriculum & Teacher Education in Math (CTE: Math) and Race, Inequality, and Language in Education (RILE). She is concurrently earning a certificate in Research Practice Partnerships (RPP).

At Stanford, her research work focuses on identifying and addressing aspects of math education that restrict students’ access to learning and engaging in classroom-based mathematics. In addition, her own academic interests in mathematics are at the intersection of math, art, and imagination.

China received her BA and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from California State University, Sacramento. She also holds supplemental teaching credentials in English and Social Studies.
