My name is Ruby Chang. I was born in Manhattan, NY, but raised in Korea. I came back to the States when I was 17. I graduated from FIHS and went to Stony Brook University to obtain my B.S. in math Education. I now go to Queens College to receive my M.S. in pure mathematics. I am also a member of Golden Key International Honor Society. Before I joined back FIHS as an educator, I taught 8th grade math in the Bronx. This year, I teach 9th and 10th grade math on E/R team. I love teaching at FIHS because I can share my immigration story to support my students both academically and emotionally. During my leisure time, I like to play the piano, cook, and play with my lovely two puppies.

Park MinHye

Science

My name is Minhye Park and I teach science at FIHS.  
I earned my B.S in Biology from the Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute and an M.S Ed in Secondary Science Education from Hofstra University.  I believe students learn science by doing science, and that my class is where my students will learn life skills that are critical for their success in college and future careers.  As our students must be prepared to work collaboratively in a global and technological society, I emphasize critical thinking and problem solving, using our science content to develop good evidence-based reasoning and communication skills.
