Hello! My name is Ellen Kim, and I am ecstatic to be serving as the Family Liaison for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. I am originally from Southern California where I received my teaching certificate and master's in early childhood education. I taught kindergarten for several years in Los Angeles before I married my husband of 19 years. Since then, we have lived in South Korea twice; Virginia, Kansas, Washington and California. It has been a whirlwind adventure, moving every couple of years, but our family (17-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter) finally settled in Northern Virginia last August and consider it our final destination.
Throughout our journey, I met with many different families of all cultures and races. It truly has been a wonderful learning experience to be immersed in so many diverse communities. I am hoping to bring my experience to the community and families at Horizon Elementary School. My goal is to empower and assist families to ensure the success of the students. I will work diligently to connect our families with resources and facilitate a strong family-school partnership and thus strengthen the student's academic and healthy development.
Please contact me Ellen.Kim@lcps.org and thank you! Looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.
