Hello! I am Mrs. Ong, and I am a special education resource teacher at the school. I received my bachelor's degree in special education (mild/moderate) and my master's degree also in special education at Brigham Young University in 2012 and 2018 respectively. Prior to teaching here, I taught students with disabilities in other settings. I worked with students with severe and mild/moderate disabilties for a year in Utah and another 2 years in Malaysia.
I am a mother of two grown children, one of whom is married. Some of the things I love to do are reading, writing poetry, and cooking Malaysian food for my family. I also enjoy hiking and being outdoors where I can observe and take photographs of birds.
I feel privileged to be a part of the J.R. Smith Elementary team. There is honestly no better group of people to work with. We love our students and work hard at making the school a safe and conducive environment for learning.
