     new teachers

    Welcome, New OBEN Faculty Members!

  • A former attorney, an earthquake survivor, and a bi-lingual first-generation college graduate are among the new faculty members in the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District.

    Ms. Ting Pang has joined the District as a physics teacher at Oyster Bay High School, replacing Ms. Heidi Gross who retired in June. In her previous position, she taught Honors/ Regents Physics at Townsend Harris High School in Queens, and before arriving to the United States, taught physics at the ZhongShan ZhuoYa Foreign Language School in Zhongshan, China.

  • Ms. Pang's passion for teaching stems from growing up in a large family in China. “My grandparents raised 12 children, six of them were adopted after a devastating earthquake in my hometown,” she said. “…I always liked to teach and take care of my younger cousins. I think that is the reason I like to teach.”

    Innovative, collaborative and focused, Ms. Pang said she is passionate about communicating scientific concepts and complex principles in simple and entertaining methods.
