Shannon King, Social Studies Teacher, said, “Moyleang Taing is a student most teachers dream about; she is a driven, engaging, and curious student who helped to make our classroom a lively environment and safe place to take intellectual risks.  But what impresses me the most about Moyleang is her pride in her cultural heritage.  I quote Moyleang here, “My American community has taught me that is was okay to be different because that’s what defines us.  This is the place where people are able to integrate different beliefs and explore new ones through others. ….It’s a place where I have been taught that it was alright to accept and love others despite their differences.”  This obvious love for her diverse culture and for people will help achieve Moyleang’s ultimate dream of becoming a pediatrician who travels the world to take care of children in rural areas who may not have adequate access to healthcare.”

Angela Motomura, Math Teacher, said, “Moyleang is a very conscientious student with a highly developed mathematical mind.  She works hard to make sure she masters each objective taught and is always willing to lend a helping hand to other students in need.  She’s an absolute joy to have in class.”

Donna Schrock, Science Department Chair, said, “Moyleang is an excellent student.  She is an intelligent, polite young lady with an exceptional work ethic.  Moyleang has been an “A” student in Pre-AP Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, and again this year in AP Chemistry.  Her integrity and positive attitude help to make her a successful student and role model in the classroom.  Moyleang is a pleasure to have in the classroom, and I foresee a bright future for this special young lady.”

When asked about her future plans, Moyleang said, “I plan to attend the University of Houston, major in biology, and minor in Asian American Studies.  After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I plan to attend medical school to become a neonatologist.”
