Mr. Vam Ntxaij Yajzt

I am excited to start my fourth year as a fifth grade teacher at The Heights Community School.  I have been with Saint Paul Public School District 625 for 17 years.  I taught Hmong Culture, Hmong Literacy, and Hmong History since 2004 at Washington Technology Magnet School prior to coming to The Heights.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point and went to Saint Mary's University of Minnesota for graduate school. 

As a fifth grade teacher, I love to see my fifth graders succeed and their anxiousness of moving on to middle school each year.  I am student centered and love to challenge my students to work hard and become independent learners.  During my free time, I like to get involved in community voluntary activities, ride my bike, and relax.
