About the Teacher
I was adopted from South Korea when I was a baby and raised in Massachusetts. I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in French. This year I will be the Instructional Technology Coach at the school, where I will help teachers integrate technology into their classroom. I am looking forward to helping others and having a more involved role in instructional pedagogy. Below is a collage of what makes me a teacher. Besides the obvious aspects of technology and teaching, I think my family and friends are truly those who keep me grounded and motivated to teach. I would not be where I am today without my husband, family, and great friends.
My vision for education is rooted in making school a place for learning and a safe haven for students. Despite one’s homelife or individual differences, schools should be the platform for success. All students deserve a high-quality education where they learn to become innovative thinkers. In a perfect school, I believe that educators should provide a nurturing learning environment that fosters Social and Emotional well-being and 21st Century Skills. Learning should be rooted in real-world issues, integrate STEM Literacy, and the approach to learning should be inquiry-based. As our society is always evolving, education needs to also adapt to students. It is no longer acceptable to continue settle for mediocrity when it comes to education.
