Angelica Huang-Murphy was born and raised in Shanghai, China. She first came to the US for college at the University of Michigan. Coming from a family of educators with a genuine passion for learning languages, she pursued her master’s in teaching foreign language at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California. Since then, she has worked with students of all ages and in various capacities at multiple schools and programs, including the Middlebury Institute, Flint Hill School, Berwick Academy, and Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy. She spent the last few years raising her two daughters, who challenge and refine her teaching approach every day.
At St. Andrew’s, Angelica teaches Chinese and is the dorm parent on Gaul East/L Dorm, where she lives with her family. Aside from teaching Chinese, Angelica also works in the admissions office, where she thoroughly enjoys meeting many prospective St. Andreans and their families. She lives on Gaul East/L Dorm with her husband, Neal, and their two daughters, Alyna and Rydia.
