Ms. Gangbo is thrilled to be a part of the Equitas Academy family as the Reading Intervention Teacher. Ms. Gangbo grew up in Atlanta, Georgia where she attended Emory University. After graduating from Emory, she joined AmeriCorps in Salinas, California where she saw the importance of giving all students the literacy skills they need to learn and grow. She believes that all scholars should have the same opportunities to further their education and they do best with support from their teachers, families and sense of community. Literacy and reading is very important to her and she hopes to encourage students to read outside of school, and enjoy reading to learn about new topics that interest them. She hopes to show her students that reading can be fun and something they can enjoy not only in school, but outside of school as well!In her spare time she enjoys reading various books, listening to podcasts, going on nature trails, and collecting stones and naturally formed crystals!
