Mr. Andy Tang, Assistant Principal
My name is Andy Tang and I am proud to be your Assistant Principal as Carr Intermediate School. I would love to take this moment to tell you a little about myself. I immigrated to the United States when I was two years old as a Vietnamese refugee after the Vietnam War. After my father died in the war, my mother fled the country in hopes of creating a better life for her two kids. With only a third grade education, she opened up a small cosmetics shop in the swap meet, where I helped out every day since I was seven. In 2005 I graduated from CSUF with a degree in mathematics and was the first in my family to get a college degree.
For ten years, I worked at Santa Ana High School in many different capacities. I was a math teacher, department chair, TOSA, and Activities Director. I am starting my third year at Carr Intermediate School. I had many opportunities to work with families and community members at Santa Ana. Although some of us have different cultural backgrounds, I believe we have very similar beliefs. We have a deep rich culture, we don’t shy away from hard work, and we would do whatever it takes to make sure our kids are successful. I have a strong belief that all our kids/students can and will be successful and communication and collaboration between administrators, parents, teachers, and students is essential for that success. I look forward to working with each and every one of you.
