Zhong, Michelle

Michelle Zhong 02.jpg
Ming Xiu (Michelle) Zhong is an undergraduate student at the University of Washington, Seattle. She will graduate in 2018, having majored in History with a minor in Education. She plans to go to graduate school with the intention of pursuing a career in secondary education. She hopes to eventually go into education policy after many years of classroom teaching. Her aspirations for becoming a teacher come from her personal experiences as a student in the public education system, interactions with teachers who were passionate about their responsibility as educators, and a grandmother who was never able to go to school. Michelle believes that understanding the past helps people engage better with the present as well as prepare for the future. She believes that learning about the history of civilizations, politics, races, and individuals allows for students to gain a better understanding of their own history and the identities they claim in society.
