Miss Sandy Vang
Welcome to my teacher page! My name is Sandy Vang and I am a 3rd year High School Social Studies Teacher at Chester High School! I am excited to be able to share your child's educational journey alongside you and your student. I am a graduate of York Comprehensive High School and USC Upstate. I love teaching and have known it was my calling since childhood. I am engaged and a mother to a beautiful, full of life, little boy.
Here is my "WHY," I love working with high school students. It is a critical time in our students' lives and the perfect time to have a mentor. I focus much of my effort in my classroom on creating meaningful relationships with my student to make them feel safe, welcomed, and accepted. Students will oftentimes walk out of our classrooms and forget the majority of what we teach them. However, what they do remember is how we, as their teachers, respected them, talked with them, and worked with them. It is an amazing time in our students' lives and it is an honor to witness the growth, maturity, and love for themselves, our young people develop that they often do not get credit for. I am thankful to be a teacher who can see that journey and influence my students, positively.
So I will end my introduction to you all with this, I will always try to build professional interpersonal relationships with your child as a mentor, teacher, listening ear, and a place of comfort. I am open to communication with you and your student at any time with concerns or comments you may have. I enjoy what I do as a teacher and strive to improve myself every day. I am best reached via email, please feel free to contact me.
Have a wonderful day and welcome home!
