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.
