VFW Honors Washougal Teacher
February 1, 2023 7:25AM PST
Alice Yang never imagined she’d be teaching children as her career. She got a degree in architecture, but then had her daughter and decided to do something that allowed her to spend more time with her, so she opened a daycare. Her daycare was basically a classroom. A couple of the parents happened to be teachers. They convinced her she was a natural at the job, so Yang got her teaching credential. She now teaches art at Cape Horn-Skye Elementary and Canyon Creek Middle School in Washougal, and the VFW Post 4278 has honored her as a Smart/Maher Teacher of the Year.
