Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! Nyob Zoo!
My name is Alice Vang and I am a Reading ELL Teacher at LEAP High School. I've been teaching at LEAP for five years and this is the best place to work! I love the students!
Before coming to LEAP, I taught 1st Grade ELL for seven years. I received my Bachelor's degree in Sociocultural Studies from Bethel College and my Master's in ESL from Hamline University.
Students often wonder where I come from. I was born in the United States. My parents immigrated to the U.S. as refugees from Laos and I am Hmong-American.
Just like many of my students, I grew up learning English as a second language. It is one of the many reasons I enjoy teaching at LEAP, because I am familiar with what it can be like to learn English and adjust to a new country. I also know the great potential students possess and strongly believe they can be successful in America. This is my goal for all students.
Interests/hobbies: hunting for the best Japanese Ramen shop, snapchatting, shopping, walking at the park, traveling, cooking (not cleaning), football (SKOL!), and volunteering at my church.
I welcome students and parents to come visit my classroom. If you have any questions about your student, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 651-228-7706.
