Ms. Mai Pang Vang
Hello! Nyob zoo!
My name is Mai Pang Vang or Xib Fwb Maiv Paj and I am one of the Kindergarten Hmong Dual Language teachers. This is my 8th year teaching at Jackson Elementary in the Hmong Dual Language Program and my 9th year teaching overall.
In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, walking/jogging, and spending time with my family and friends.
I am excited about the learning that will take place this year! Please see below for resources to make your child's Kindergarten year a success. Feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions or concerns. Have a great day!
*Thank you for attending fall conferences. All 20 families in our class came to conferences! Thank you for your support in your child's education.
*If you have not sent in a baby picture of your child, please send one in.
*Continue to practice our Hmong New Year songs.
Area of Study
Unit 2: Exploring Change in My World
This Area of Study focuses on the changes in the student's world. The basic concepts build a basis for later learning. Noticing change is the first step toward understanding the sequence of a cycle through observation and inquiry skills. Exploring Change in My World will focus on the changes students experiecnce personally, in their families, in their schools, and in their community.
A-Z Books (more titles coming soon!)
Your child will be bringing two Hmong books home each week. I have recorded the Hmong books so your child can follow along at home.

Afton Apple Orchard - October 22, 2018
Kindergarten students went to the apple orchard on Monday, October 22, 2018. We learned about the life cycle of apple trees. We picked apples and pumpkins, went on a hayride, and tried apple cider. We had a great time!
