From teachers to front office staff to administrators, the roles vary, but the mission is the same. To recognize our team members, we will begin a Staff Spotlight Series! Every week, we will be spotlighting a staff member at Near West Intergenerational School! 

Meet Mr. Wong

To kick off our Staff Spotlight Series, we want to introduce one of the newest members of Near West Community, Nelson Wong! Mr. Wong joined the Refining Stage team this year teaching math and science. Mr. Wong is a recent 2020 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley.  

What drew you to working in education? 

The impact that you can make, especially in the earlier grades.  

Tell us a fun fact about yourself! 

I live in an apartment with another elementary teacher!  

What else do you want people to know about you? 

This is my first-year teaching, and I am so excited to meet our school community members! 

Welcome to the Near West Community, Mr. Wong!
