Mr. Peter Sang
Mr. Sang student-taught at Washington right before he started teaching here in 2019. He co-teaches 6th Grade Reader's Workshop with Ms. Brown and Mrs. Rumpza. Mr. Sang first came to the U.S. to attend Carleton College. He then taught Sociology at his former high school in Burma for a year. He obtained his master's degree from University of Minnesota.
Mr. Sang enjoys playing board games and connecting with friends and family on social media. He also loves reading academic articles and books about teaching English language.
Mr. Sang and his wife currently live in Minneapolis. His parents and two siblings are still in Burma, while the rest of his family has immigrated to Germany. He has 12 nieces and 3 nephews spread over four different countries.
A favorite quote from bell hooks that guides Mr. Sang's teaching is:
"There must exist a paradigm, a practical model for social change that includes an understanding of ways to transform consciousness that are linked to efforts to transform structures."
