Chang Teaches Chinese to High School Students
CSD grad Stephanie Chang, MS 2002, has spent 4 weeks of her summer teaching Chinese to high school students in Will County. During the school year Chang is a speech language pathologist in the Aurora West School District. Chang is teaching at Lewis University which received a $60,000 “STARTALK National Security Grant to teach a four-week summer Chinese language camp for Will County high school students.” Read more in The Herald News.
In a recent note to Donna Quesal, Stephanie said, “Thank you for your encouragement. The training I received at WIU helped me a lot in teaching language. I still have a lot to learn, and will keep working hard on being a good SLP. . . . In fact, my proposals to ASHA have been accepted this time (both poster and speaking sessions). I am very grateful for WIU faculty’s support.”
Stephanie is the kind of grad everyone is proud of–the department, the college, and the university.
