Ms. Chang is thrilled to be alongside a group of enthusiastic educators at Equitas this year, and can’t wait to meet the scholars and families of the Pico-Union community. She is passionate about providing a challenging, rigorous, warm, engaging, and fun learning environment for all scholars! Her favorite part about teaching is watching all her little scholars grow and develop to be independent and confident learners and leaders. Ms. Chang received her Bachelor’s Degree from The College of New Jersey in Elementary Education and Math/Science/Technology. After teaching in NJ for three years, she made the adventurous move to Colombia to teach at a bilingual international school for two years. While in Colombia, she had the opportunity to travel the beautiful country, learn Spanish, and teach English Language Learners. This experience inspired her to get her Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at the University of Rochester. Ms. Chang relocated to Los Angeles this summer, and is extremely excited to explore the outdoors and eat lots of good food!
