Ratmany Kang

Hi, I'm Ratmany Kang. I'm native to Houston, and Third Ward. HISD is definitely in my blood from Lockhart (old) Elementary, Ryan Middle School, to HSPVA (c/o 2000), I've been around HISD awhile, & am now back as your creative graphic design teacher.
When I'm not working, you can find me on Reddit, working to further my skills in Adobe, reading manga (Kimestu No Yaiba, The Gods of High School, Dr. Stone, to name a few), watching anime, working on my car, flying FPV drone/qwads, or modding/playing with Nerf toys.
During the summers, I'm usually out of the country, traveling with my wife and son, experiencing, filming with my Mavic Pro/Go Pro Max, and multiplying the five senses of another world.
Can't wait to have you in my class, to see what we can create!

I tend to smile and laugh alot. (click me)

I'm awkard on purpose. 

And don't forget, you're awesome!

Stay on yo' grind!

By the way, here's my personality type, so you'll have an idea of what kind of person I am. For the most part, I get along with everyone.


What's your "Ikigai" in life?

I have many favorite quotes, but this one of my favorites from Pokemon The Movie.

Mewtwo: "I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are."
