MISS NYAH

AFTER SCHOOL

 

Miss Nyah is currently pursuing a double major in Elementary and Special Education at UW-Madison. She started working at HHA in the summer of 2021 as a support teacher in Paddington Station. In the fall she started working as the After School Teacher for Kindergarten and 1st grade.

Miss Nyah was born in China and adopted as a infant. She spent most of her life growing up on a tree farm near Verona. Her family loves animals and has a yellow lab and four cats. In her free time she lives to bike, ski, and spend time with her friends and family. 

In the last few years she has been searching for a path that would allow her to engage in her passion of issues such as racial, environmental, and social justice. She has finally landed on teaching to pursue those passions! She is excited to share with students important knowledge from a wide variety of perspectives, including their own. With that she hopes to build critical thinking and curiosity. She looks forward to all the learning she'll be doing in the coming years!
