Love story leads two Clarkston teachers to new school in China

Oakland County educators Aaron Dobson and Jennifer Platukas’ love language is fluent in Chinese.

The two teachers — with Dobson as acting principal — will both
instruct students at Oxford Community Schools’ new international high
school in China. Dobson asked Platukas to marry him after ensuring they
would both be able to teach at the Northeast Yucai Oxford International
High School. In what can only be described as a whirlwind proposal, the
couple became engaged, accepted the positions, and will move to China in
less than a month.


The couple will leave July 15 to move to China, giving them time to get
acclimated and finish up curriculum work before the new high school
opens its doors on Sept. 1. They have signed a one-year contract and
regardless of where they’re living at the time, they’ve promised their
parents to get married in Michigan.
