Mr. Teng Yang - Physical Education


I am native to Oroville and have been living here for 32 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 15th year as an educator. A lot of my years were spent in the Afterschool Program, a few years at Central Middle school, and now, entering the seventh year at STREAM as the PE teacher. 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 that the staff creates a positive vibe for a safe and fun learning 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. The most unique thing I can say about my family is that we all 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. I have grown my own family to FOUR handful kids. This year my oldest son, Keebkwm, is attending STREAM as a 2nd grader and daughter Nkaujnag to 1st. 


     In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer, coaching, fishing, doing some outdoor activities, and hanging out with the families. I've played soccer since I can remember and am still enjoying it. Bass fishing is something I also love doing. Lake Oroville and the Afterbay is the place to catch 'em all. Camping and hiking are usually times spent with the family. I enjoy the outdoors because nature gives me a sense of peace. 


     My dreams and hopes for our future generations is to provide the right tool for them to reach their potential in whatever direction they may take.
