“I was born in Troy, Michigan but grew up in Seoul, Korea. I love food and enjoy cooking. Sometimes it is hard to be so far away from family, but feel fortunate to be surrounded by such wonderful staff members and great students who I consider to be my second family away from home.”
Ms. Sunwoo‘s Educational Philosophy:
” I truly care about the children and their well-being. I think it is crucial as a teacher to establish a special relationship with each individual student. Thus, I find it important to create a welcoming atmosphere within the classroom to encourage students to participate freely without the fear of being wrong.”
