I am one of the learning specialists, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Dominion High School family! I am passionate about creating positive experiences within our school and seeing students learn, grow, and celebrate successes. I am looking forward to many celebrations at Dominion High School.
I was born and raised in Korea, but I came to the United States almost thirty years ago when my family decided to immigrate. Learning a new language and adjusting to a new culture was adventurous and challenging, especially starting high school in a totally new environment. In 1992, I received the Bachelor of Arts from the University of Virginia and received the Master of Arts in Education with specialties in teaching learning disabilities and reading from Regent University in 1994. In 2011, I acquired a National Board Teacher Certification in Literacy - Reading and Language Arts. In August 2016, I received a post graduate Certificate in an Educational Leadership and Administration from George Washington University.
This is my 14th year in LCPS, but this will be my 24th year of teaching. In the previous years, I taught K – 6 in North Carolina and Virginia. For the last two years, I served Newton – Lee ES as an Assistant Principal. Many students, parents, and colleagues have touched my life and inspired me to become a better educator. Fortunately, during those years, I was honored as a Teacher of the Year at an elementary school and Reading Teacher of the Year at a middle school. In addition, I was featured in a school district’s magazine as one of the highly effective teachers.
Currently, I live in Ashburn with my son! I love spending time with my family, exploring new places, hiking, watching football, playing piano, hanging out at the beach, and reading!
