January Member: Grace Wong
Hello! My name is Grace Wong, and I am a new second grade teacher at La Rosa Elementary School. I grew up in Temple City and attended Longden Elementary, Oak Ave, and Temple City High School. Afterwards, I attended Azusa Pacific University where I received my B.A. and M.A. in education. During the last two years, I was a reading intervention teacher for Arcadia Unified where I worked with students from first through fifth grade.
When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy reading, painting, and traveling. Some of my favorite places that I’ve visited are Hawaii and Hong Kong. I like to integrate my passions in my teaching by showing students different literary genres, art projects, and cultures.
I am so excited to be back in the district and working alongside teachers that inspired me to go into education. Temple City is an amazing district that truly values their students. I hope to create meaningful connections with students and their families. I am looking forward to working with each of you.
