Jasmine Tang was nominated by Huong Nguyen, the parent of a student.

She advised me to join the school's Parents University Program, which helped me learn about what I should do to engage with school and my son. Jasmine is a very patient, knowledgeable, hardworking teacher!"

So grateful for the amazing work that Jasmine has done for our students and their families. Sometimes, coming from a bilingual background can be an obstacle, but with the right resources & guidance (like, Jasmine's!), the parents and guardians of our students can stay informed and get involved! In Klein ISD, we're all about bridging the gap and connecting to our families and our parent liaisons definitely show us what it means to connect, respect, and embrace diversity in our district. Thank you, Jasmine! So happy you are a part of this Klein Family. You rock!

She bridges cultural expectations and facilitates meaningful communication between students and their families, and fulfills this role in all parts of her life. As a member of Klein ISD, she has gone above and beyond with translation and interpretation services for various programs and events, and outside of work, has volunteered her weekends at her local church to teach Vietnamese language classes for the past 25 years.

She has shown tremendous love for the children and been very passionate about helping them. She is always calm, polite, and cooperative. She is also very patient and willing to change and learn to improve. Our educational center is very thankful for her helping hands. I am very happy to recommend her for the award.

Jasmine Tang has been a tremendous help in providing interpreting services to our Making Connections for Autism program. She supports conversations between Vietnamese parents and myself as a Teacher. She is a lifesaver on numerous occasions for meetings. Not only is she an amazing interpreter but also has an amazingly positive personality and is always willing to help. What a blessing to have someone so self-less to work with!

A very quiet force in the KF family. Each time I see her she is working to support students and families. From everything I have heard there are many students who would not have made it to graduation without strong sense of desire for them to be successful.

Jasmine is always available to help parents in the College and Career Room. She spends time helping parents understand the college process and will bring the parents into the college room for help. When we have after school FAFSA/TASFA nights she volunteers to come and translate for our parents. There are many students whose first language is not English and she is always there to help them and bring them to the college room for help. She spends lots of hours working with us with scholarships, and college admissions, TSI, etc. She is an asset to our Klein Forest Eagles.

What is the exact word that I can use to describe this person. She is and incredible lady who constantly putting her time not just into education but also helping others to change to be better persons. She helps so many parents realize that students can be more succeed and reach higher goals with parent involvement in their children education.My child was about to drop out high school and also attempted suicide; we had so many issues and we can't communicate with each other. Our relationship was damaged and I cried out for help. Ms. Tang worked with me closely and help both of us understand each other. Thanks to her that my child now in college and soon graduate as an engineer as he likes to be. She actually changed our lives.

Davin Tran Posted 4 months ago

Ms. Tang has been such a big help to me and my family. As a student in Klein Forest, I have witnessed Ms. Tang's incredible impact to the school's community. Coming from a Vietnamese immigrant household, it has always been difficult to explain to my parents about the school system and my academics. With Ms. Tang's help, she has made it easy for my parents to understand and help me in my academic endeavors. Ms. Tang has always been there for me whenever I needed help and could point me in the right direction if she couldn't directly help me. If I ever needed to talk to her about anything personal, she has always been willing to hear me out. Whenever I see her, she always has a smile and it really helps bring my mood up, especially if I had a long day or a difficult test. She has been the biggest positive influence and role model to me at Klein Forest and I'm happy to nominate her as life changer of the year.

Where do I begin to write for such an awesome person! Ms. Thao Tang is a true servant leader with a huge heart! She is always willing to go above and beyond her duties to help, serve, and lead by example all while staying calm with a level headed attitude. I have never ever witness Ms. Thao losing her temper or going off on someone that mistreats her. She always respond with a smile and positive attitude. Nothing or no job is too hard, difficult or big task for Ms. Thao. She graciously accepts and takes on the duty. Ms. Thao is very deserving of this award and I cannot think or know of a better person than Ms. Thao. I unreservedly nominate Ms. Thao Tang for the Life Changer of the Year Award.

Ms. Tang is a very important staff member of our school. She is very friendly and willing to help anyone as much as she can. She creates a friendly environment for students, parents, and staff. Because of her, our English as Second Language students has a voice as well. She helps with interpretations. She tries to find programs that help our community as well. Of course, some of the success comes by being a good partner. The Parent Center is essential in our school.

Awesome, Congratulation ! I am very proud of the awesome women I married and what she have been doing is not just excellent for our children but also outstanding for her students at public high school & at church. More than anyone else, I know that she was a career-loving and dedicated person. Moreover, almost 30 years is not really a long but enough to know & recognize a person with a love and caring for the future of the younger generations including young Vietnamese students without beneficial title, especially as a long term volunteer at Vietnamese language program at Our Lady of LaVang Church.
