Hello! My name is Mr. Yang. I teach Hmong Language and Culture, as well as one section of Asian American Studies, here at Washington. This is my second year in the district but have over 8 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!
