dc.description This recording and transcript form part of a collection of oral history interviews conducted by the Chao Center for Asian Studies at Rice University. This collection includes audio recordings and transcripts of interviews with Asian Americans native to or living in Houston.
dc.description.abstract Born in Taipei Taiwan, Albert Wei grew up in California as the youngest of three siblings. As an undergrad, he started at Reed College and transferred to Rice University, where he founded what would evolve into Rice’s Caregiving Program, which aims to reduce harm related to alcohol consumption on college campuses. He has teaching experience all across the world, including Houston, Peru, and Taiwan, which has allowed him to gain a holistic understanding of education. He has also applied cultural nuances that he picked up while teaching in Taiwan, such as incorporating mediation periods to Sharpstown High School. While working under Teach for America, he received the 2013 High School Outstanding Beginning Teacher of the Year Award. He now works for ProUnitas, a non-profit that helps school districts and support systems maximize the internal and external services for students in Houston.
