Mrs. Monica Yang, 7th/8th Test Prep Reading Enrichment Classes


After receiving my degree in Secondary Education, ELA, at the University of South Alabama, I taught at Hankins Middle School in Theodore, AL for four years.  Afterwards, my son Leighton Yang was born, so I took off for three years.  As he approached pre-school age, I continued my teaching career at J. Larry Newton.  Eventually, Newton’s middle grades and FMS merged, which was the start of my FMS adventure. 

I have taught 7th and 8th grade Language Arts for twelve years and am now teaching the Reading Test Prep enrichment. Working with this age group is never boring, and I love the spontaneity they bring on a daily basis.
