Aljay Tan


MYP Year 3 (8I)



I was born in Quezon City, Philippines. I came to America in October of 2000 and I have lived in the Houston area ever since. I went to school in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and graduated from Langham Creek High School. From there, I went to the University of Houston and started off in the Pre-Pharmacy program. During my second year, I made the decision to switch to the College of Education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my B.S. in Teaching and Learning in 2017.


This is my third year at Tanglewood Middle School. I started here in the 2016-2017 school year as a student teacher in 7th grade science. Since the 2017-2018 school year, I have been the 8th grade science teacher for the Innovation House. This year will also be my first year as the coach for the Tanglewood swim team.


Outside of school, I am a dogfather to a 3-year-old papillion, an avid PC gamer, and a habitual Netflix binge-watcher.
