Ms. Pang-Ngia Vang


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Jie Ming! My name is Pang-Ngia Vang and I teach English Learners. This year I will be working with English language learners in kindergarten and first grade. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself. I strongly believe that it is essential for parents to know as much about their child’s teacher as possible!

I attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and graduated in 1994, with a major in elementary education and a minor in English as a Second Language. Right after graduation, I went to Thailand and taught for a semester in Chiang Mai. The next year, I came back and went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to get my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. I currently live in Eden Prairie with my wonderful and intelligent husband, Tim Jung. We love to travel and eat!

I have been a teacher for 27 years. I have three teaching licenses: Elementary Education, Bilingual Education, and English as a Second Language. I absolutely love teaching and could not imagine myself doing anything else! It is truly my passion! I cannot wait to start another exciting and successful year! If you have any questions or ever need to contact me, please do not hesitate to email me at

Thank you for all that you do for your child! I know that we will have an outstanding year together!

Ms. Vang
