    Welcome to Oakdale Elementary School!  My name is Theresa Thao-Yang and this is my 14th year teaching, but my first year teaching EL.  I've taught Kindergarten and First grade for the past 13 years.  I am excited to be teaching, learning, and working with your child this year. 

    I have my Undergraduate Degree, B.S. in Elementary Education, and my Master's in Education from Concordia University, St. Paul.  I currently hold a PK-6 teaching license, a K-12 Reading License and an EL license.  I love learning and trying to improve my teaching--I am currently in an Educational Doctorate program at Concordia University, St. Paul. Continuous learning is an important part of my life and I try really hard to instill that in my own children and my students.

    I live in Roseville with my husband, Adam, and my three children, Alex, Aaron, and Audrey.  Alex is a Junior at the U of M, Twin Cities this year, Aaron is a Sophomore at the U of M, Duluth this fall, and Audrey is starting her Freshman year in high school.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, running, and spending time with my family.

    It's going to be a great year and I can't wait to see all the learning that's going to be happening!  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me.  Your child's learning is a team effort.
