My name is Mr. Peter Kang and I will be your
son or daughter’s Art teacher for this school year at Millikan High School.
I thought it might be appropriate for me to
introduce myself to you. I live in Montclair, California and I have over 8
years of experience teaching throughout Southern California. I taught at a
non-profit organization called Able ARTS Work in Hawthorne, Gardena and Long
Beach for four years. There, I taught several different art mediums to adults
and seniors with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Before teaching
art, I was employed as an afterschool tutor for the Afterschool Enrichment
& Safety Program (ASES) for grades 1, 2 & 3 at Mendoza elementary for
over 3 ½ years. Recently, I worked as a Para Professional working with kids
with Autism for about a year for a company called Autism Spectrum Therapies. I’m
excited to be your child’s art teacher for the school year and I cannot wait to
I graduated from California State University,
Long Beach (CSULB) in 2013 with a degree in Art Education and I’ve also
received a Single Subject Credential in Art from CSULB as well. I love teaching
art and see art as a great medium for integrating higher education while
broadening a students’ creativity to enhance their life skills and education.
My goal is to provide engaging instructions and
class discussions that challenges their critical thinking skills, foster intelligent
discussions, enhance their creativity and improve their academic education that
will help prepare them for college.
As a parent myself, I understand that
parental involvement is crucial to a child’s education and I am here with an
open mind to listen to any concerns that you might have throughout the school year.
If you have any questions about a grade that was given or need more explanations
on course expectations and assignments, please contact me by email as provided

is my school email address, as well as the school’s number. I will do my best
to make any accommodations for you and your child during the school year. Thank
you and look forward to hearing from you this school year.
