Mr. Teng Yang
Dean of Students & Physical Education
I am native to Oroville and have been living here for 34 years. I attended grade school in the Thermalito District and went to Oroville High School. I continued my education at Butte College straight out of high school and graduated with a transfer to Chico State. After two years at CSU Chico, I graduated with my B.S. in Criminal Justice. I somehow ended up here at STREAM.
I am now entering my 19th year as an educator. Some of my years were spent in the Afterschool Program, a few years at Central Middle school, and now, entering the 10th year at STREAM as the PE teacher and part time Dean of Students. I am honored to be one of the Founders of STREAM Charter School and is blessed to have the opportunity to continue my work here. One important reason I love it here is the different dynamics with students, staff, and parents that I get to experience.
Like most Hmong people in my generation, I come from a big family. I stand proud to be part of seven boys, three girls, and two loving parents (father deceased in 2019). The most unique thing I can say about my family is that we all (10) have graduated from Chico State. I will admit that without the support and encouragement from my family, I might not be where I stand today. My wife and I have grown our own family to five beautiful kids. Three of my five kids are now attending STREAM.
In my spare time, I enjoy doing various sports, coaching, fishing, outdoor activities, and hanging out with the families. I have a competitive mind and do not like losing. When I need to decompress, I love to take my family out and enjoy time together. We do things such as camping, hiking, fishing, boating, you name it.
One of my goals for this year is to be able to hone my grit and start instilling what's necessary for students to be successful.
