Mr. Pei-Yeu Chang
大家好, Hello Everyone! I am the Mandarin teacher at Shortridge High School. I am proud to be part of the Shortridge community since 2017. I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan, and came to Indiana for college in 2003. I received my bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University and later attended Ball State University and studied Urban Planning. In a fortuitous opportunity, I became an educator and started teaching Chinese at Indianapolis Public Schools in 2012. I first started teaching at high schools and then I was teaching grades K-8 for 4 years. When I am on break, I like to go travel and try out different cuisines. There is so much to see in this world. I am looking forward to continuing to grow and expanding my horizon with everyone here at Shortridge.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
― Mark Twain
