In this episode of The Making of a Teacher, CTI Josh talks with Mandarin teacher Cheyenne Maechtle about growing up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, how he approaches learning a new language, and how he goes about teaching languages to high school students.  Cheyenne shares how his curiosity about how things work led him to study science as a young man, and how that same curiosity led him to study languages.  Cheyenne also explains how he goes about learning a new language, and how he went from studying German in college and graduate school to living in China and learning Mandarin.
