Hello families! Welcome to 202! My name is Pang Xiong. I have had the pleasure of working at Marcy the past 4 years as an Instructional and Math Specialist. I am so excited to be teaching 4th grade this year especially because I may have worked with your student when they were in 2nd grade! As a math specialist I co-taught math in K-2 classrooms and worked with teachers. I enjoy working with teachers but I love working with students more! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a light bulb go off in a student’s mind.
Our school theme this year is “Teach Peace.” Marcy is an International Peace Site therefore this theme is fitting. I value students’ ability to solve conflicts peacefully and at the same time have compassion for others. My hope and dream is that students will continue to have a growth mindset by challenging themselves, giving their best effort, and taking risks. I hope that all students will grow in curiosity and advance their love of learning. In our classroom community we will respect one another, encourage kindness, and cooperate. I look forward to getting to know each student individually.
When I am not at school, I love spending time with my husband, 3-years old son, and 5-month old daughter. I enjoy traveling, trying new foods, reading a good book, watching a good movie/show on Netflix, and playing volleyball. I come from a big family of 2 brothers and 4 sisters. My sisters and I like cooking together.
Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to partnering with you to ensure your child reach their fullest potential. We are going to have a fabulous year!
