  • Who was ConnieMom?
MomWithFlower ~Connie Gibson, author, international speaker, and award-winning English professor, taught for the Foreign Language College at Jiangxi Normal University in Nanchang, Jiangxi, China for 15 years, from 2000-2015.

She was the recipient of China’s National Friendship Award, Jiangxi’s Mt. Lushan Award and several other awards including one created for her - The “FLTRP - Outstanding Contribution to English Learning in China Award” and others.

Professor Gibson, known as “ConnieMom” throughout China, was a very unique teacher with a different style of teaching.  She used task and project-based lessons, team or group work, discussions and activities, encouraged creative and critical thinking skills as well as communication in English writing and speech.

After a 6 year battle with cancer, Connie went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 11th, 2017.  Her memory and legacy continues on in the lives of her family, friends, and students.  To learn more, visit the tribute page.

  • Children's Book Project:
Childrens Book
The ConnieMom Gibson Presents series of Children’s Books are the result of work by her English major students from the Foreign Language College of Jiangxi Normal University, Jiangxi, China.

The first set of 4 chinese language books were published by
Jiangxi Education Publishing House Ltd. (Now Jiangxi Education Press) in 2016. They are available for purchase online at Tmall, TaoBao, and other chinese online retailers.  A second set of books are currently being processed for publication and should be released sometime in 2018.  An English translation of the books is in the works but a release date has not been set.

In ConnieMom’s own words: I hope this project stimulates other teachers to bring creativity and critical thinking skills into the classroom.  May my student’s Children’s Book Project be loved and enjoyed by all!  Hopefully parents and grandparents alike will use this series of books to read to their “little ones” and draw them into the world of stories and story-telling while bonding generations together."
