About Me: Hello, I’m Helen and I am a part of the high school teaching cohort. I was born in Korea but moved to the states and raised in southern California. One of the things that really drives my passion for teaching is my experience in learning a new language in a new country. I had wonderful teachers who invested in me to strive for my goals and dreams. I decided to pursue teaching, not just as a career, but as my passion. Which led me to be part of this wonderful community at SAVA. I work with the best staff who inspire me and the best kids who teach me new things every day.

Interests: I love trying new things to eat! I enjoy a nice cup of coffee at trendy hipster cafes. Also, I like exploring new places to eat with my husband Caleb, son Isaac, and dog Bradley.
