Fischler Professor Honored for Role in Choice Education Movement

FCE

Hui Fang Huang “Angie” Su, Ed.D.

Hui Fang Huang “Angie” Su, Ed.D., associate professor of mathematics education at NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education was recently honored as one of the 20 heroes/pioneers who were a part of the growth and success of the choice education movement in Florida from 1996 to 2016.  Dr. Su was recognized at the 2016 National Charter School Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on June 28, where former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, former Commissioner of Education Jim Horne, and Senator John Legg, were among those recognized in front of thousands of attendees from around the nation.

Dr. Su has devoted numerous years to enhancing education in the community.  She currently serves as the board chair for Integrated Science and Asian Culture (ISAAC) Academy in Miami Springs, where she works with students from Kindergarten to 8th grade.  She is also a founding board member for Somerset Academy Charter School in Pembroke Pines. When Somerset began in 1997, the school only consisted of a two-room schoolhouse that housed 50 students from Kindergarten to 5th grade; now the school is one of the five founding members of the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools (FCPCS).

Since 1999, FCPCS has helped new charter schools throughout the state with technical assistance and professional development service to Florida charter schools and their stakeholders. Since that time, the organization has grown to be one of the largest and most influential charter school associations in the U.S. that advocates on behalf of charter schools and the families they serve.
