Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Joann Yen, and I am so happy and excited to be joining the Stinson family this year! I graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies specializing in Mid-level (4th-8th) English Language Arts and Social Studies and ESL certified.
I am so excited to start my teaching career at Stinson Elementary. Although this is my first year at Stinson, I have experience teaching and substituting within the Arlington Independent School District. For this year, I am very excited to meet all my students, as building those relationships with students is something that I find extremely important. Watching the students grow socially, intellectually, and individually really helps motivate me to be the best at what I do.
Besides being in the classroom, I love to spend time with my family, and I also love to travel. I travel back to Taiwan twice a year to see my grandparents and family (However, I have not been able to do so since last year due to COVID-19). Lastly, a fun fact about me, I have dual citizenship in the United States and Taiwan.
