Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Ms. Vang's page!
My name is May Vang. I am starting my fourth year here at Capitol Hill and am very excited for this school year! This website is always a work in progress because I will be updating and adding resources as the school year goes by. You will find many important and useful things here: course description and expectations, student and parent portal, a homework calendar for each respective course, student resources, and various math related news. If you have any questions, email is the best way to get a hold of me.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Secondary Education. Immediately after graduation, I took a position teaching English as a second language in a small town in Japan near Nagano, where the 1998 Winter Olympics were held. I spent two years there and returned to Minnesota to take a math teaching position at a high school in Brooklyn Park before coming to Capitol Hill. I have recently finished my Master's in Math Educaiton through the University of Minnesota and will continue in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Education doctorate degree.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy traveling and being an adventurous foodie. I have been to Europe, Asia, Middle East, and South America. Some of most interesting foods I have eaten have been on my travels. I had cricket and horse in Japan, guinea pig in Peru, and haggis (stuffed lamb stomach) in Scotland. Some of my favorite foods are sushi, gelato, fish and chips, and kimchi. In the photo, I am riding a camel in Cappadocia, Turkey.
I look forward to a wonderful year with the Cougars!
