Hello! My name is Mr. Yang. I teach Hmong Language and Culture, as well as Asian American Studies, here at Washington. This is my fifth year in the district and has over 10 years of experience working in an urban education setting. I have a strong passion for teaching and helping positively influence and shape our students to become lifelong learners and a contributing member to society.
About myself; I was born in a refugee camp in Thailand and my family immigrated to the United States when I was two. I grew up in the projects in north Minneapolis, before moving out to Brooklyn Center, where I have chosen to remain. I graduated from Carleton College with a B.A. in American Studies and a Minor in Education. I later attended Concordia University as a post-bac student to earn my secondary teaching licensure. I also earned my Masters of Education in Educational Design and Technology from the University of St. Mary’s of Minnesota.
I am married with two beautiful little daughters. I am a casual MN sports fan. However, I especially enjoy watching the Twins and Timberwolves, as I also work for the MN Twins and the Target Center as my “fun” side jobs. I am very easy going, flexible, and spontaneous. I love to spend time with my family and go on trips, shopping together and enjoying the outdoors with them.
Sib ntsib dua!
