My name is Jayson Chang. I am a high school social science teacher out in the San Francisco Bay Area with a love for travel. Originally a SoCal native, I moved up to the Bay for my career. At the moment, I teach World History and Government & Economics.
I completed my BA in Liberal Arts with an International Studies concentration at Soka University of America, Aliso Viejo, CA. I worked for 2.5 years in the private sector as a copy editor and later as a project manager before leaving and completing my single subject social science credential and MA in Education at Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, CA.
I'm an early career educator (0-5 years in the classroom) and I thought it would be great to create a platform to share my teaching/life experiences & reflections. This blog follows me in my education career as well as my travels - my two greatest passions.
Here I will reflect on my teaching experiences and advice I want to give those who might be interested in pursuing a teaching career, already in the profession, or just curious what the mind of an educator is like.
I love to travel because I like to expose myself to different cultures and people. Those experiences not only help me grow as a person but it also trickles back down into my educational practices, especially as a social science teacher.
