Barron Perspective: Where are you from?

BP: When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
CY: When I was growing up I wanted to be a nurse.

BP: Where did you attend school before college?
CY:.I actually attended Woodbridge High School.

BP: What made you want to be a teacher and when did you realize this?
CY: I realized I wanted to be a teacher during my junior and senior year at high school because my grandmother retired as a teacher and my mom joined Woodbridge School Districts as an aide. I also coached a lot of cheer teams when I was in high school and I loved children, that is when I realized I wanted to work with children for the rest of my life.

BP: What college did you attend? What was your major? What activities did you enjoy while there and why?
CY: I attended Kean University. I have a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education with a TSD endorsement. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I actually learned how to play pool during my years of college and became really good at it. It was also a way for me to relieve stress.

BP: What is your previous teaching experience, if any?
CY:  I have only had great teaching experiences as a student teacher throughout my years at college.

BP: What classes are you currently teaching and what will you be teaching next semester?
CY: I currently teach English 2S first and fourth block. I teach Environmental Science S second block. Next semester, I am teaching Geometry S blocks two and three.

BP: How were your first few days of the school year at Woodbridge High School? What do you like about WHS?
CY: My first few days at Woodbridge High School has been nothing but happiness. I have received so much help from my fellow colleagues, my supervisors, and administration whenever I needed it. I also am very familiar with WHS since I went here for high school and it is so great for me to see teachers that taught me in the halls. 

BP: Are you involved in any extracurricular activities, if so, what and why?
CY: I am not involved in extracurricular activities at Woodbridge High. 

BP: How do you plan on making this a good school year?
CY:  I plan on helping my students as much as I can and being there for them as they are all adjusting to being in person again after two years of not being in a classroom. I want to make this the best school year by my students feeling safe, comfortable, and happy around me and others. 

BP: What are you looking forward to this school year and why?
CY: Im looking forward to all the students that I will be able to teach throughout the whole school year and learning more about them. I love to learn about sports they play, hobbies, and anything else they would like to tell me. 

BP: What hobbies do you enjoy outside of school?
CY: One hobby that I enjoy outside of school is cheer. I currently coach a cheer team for football/basketball season and I also coach a cheer team competitively. After cheering for all my years through kindergarten until the end of high school, I have learned to grow and love the sport with my whole heart.
