“Whatever you do, work it with all your heart, as working for the Lord rather than for people.” Colossians 3:23. This is a life verse for Mrs. Yong, who has been a passionate educator in Milwaukee starting in 2014. Mrs. Yong works diligently so that her students reach academic success and believes that each of them have the potential to reach their short term and long term goals.
Mrs. Yong received her bachelor’s degree in education from Carroll University in Waukesha, WI in which she received the Early Educators Promising Pioneer Award in 2017. In the Winter of 2022 she will earn her Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). She desires to further her impact on students through continued leadership.
Colleagues describe Mrs. Yong as organized, thorough, and thoughtful in her lesson planning and team contributions. She is also known to be enthusiastic, dedicated, and driven to reach the needs of all her students and to engage them in meaningful learning experiences. She finds success in the success of others and best describes herself as a cheerleader for both staff and students.
Mrs. Yong and her husband are proud parents of three young boys and enjoy playing with them at the park, going on hikes, and riding bikes. In her free time Mrs. Yong enjoys watching documentary series, jogging, and baking. When she’s with family and friends she loves rooting for a Wisconsin sports team and going on camping trips.
Mrs. Yong is excited for another year at AugPrep and to be a part of a team that is dedicated to the success of students, the wellbeing of families, and the strength of the community.
