A Little About Me

My name is Mia Chang and I am currently attending Seattle Pacific University entering my 4th year. I am an Integrated Studies major with a social sciences contraction. I enjoy spending time with my close friends and family, serving at my church, reading, and doodling. This summer, I am excited to join the staff because I am passionate about working with children and helping them grow both academically and personally. I look forward to building relationships with the kids and their families and being a part of their growth.

A Little About Me

Hi! I’m Erin, a rising sophomore at Berklee College of Music. Lately, I've been enjoying hiking, crocheting little chickens, writing music (especially orchestral covers), singing and playing the piano, and daydreaming. This summer I’m joining the School Connect staff to gain working experience related to music and to share the joy of making music with others. I look forward to helping students grow in their ability to play the piano to bring them the joy of learning a new instrument. I hope to be able to teach the students what they are personally interested in learning about. I hope this experience will be unique to each of them and that they will find their own passion for playing piano and for the art of music.

A Little About Me

My name is Anna Kwok and I’ll be a senior at Holy Names Academy this fall! I run cross country and track, love graphic design, and play the cello and pipe organ. I started volunteering with School Connect last summer and I'm so excited to be back this year! I'm looking forward to building meaningful relationships with students and staff, getting more involved with School Connect as an intern, and of course, supplementing my summer cross country training with intense games of tag at recess. 

A Little About Me

Hello, my name is Mason Chang and I am a senior at Kentridge High School. Some of my favorite hobbies include playing tennis, participating in other sports activities, and playing drums on my church youth team. I'm excited join the staff of School Connect WA because I want to give students the opportunity to engage in a sport that is often seen as inaccessible in some communities. I also want to help them succeed academically.

I am looking forward to working with the students and establishing meaningful relationships with them. As the Recreation Intern I plan to teach students how to play tennis through various drills as well as plan other fun group activities. On the academic side, I will incorporate fun and engaging activities to enhance their understanding literacy and math.
