Where do you most hope to visit?
South Korea.  My mom emigrated from South Korea and I would like to explore her childhood, my family roots, and fully immerse myself in the culture.

If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?
Languages. I think it would be super cool to be able to communicate with anyone in any language.  An added bonus of being fluent in every language would be that I get a taste of various cultures, which to me means I gain a better understanding of people, experience different traditions, and get to taste all types of food!

How can someone win a gold star with you?
Perseverance.  To see someone constantly attempt to learn or master something challenging and obtain growth is something I will always celebrate.  One of the toughest things to do in life is to repeatedly get up and try again.  We should always explore our options, change our perspective, and push ourselves to do better and be better; this is a crucial life skill that I think math teaches well, which is probably why I like learning and teaching math and why I tend to focus more on growth than just achieving the end goal.  Don’t ever quit; you earn a gold star for giving your best and refusing to be defeated by numbers and ink in my book.

What is your dream job?
My dream job is to be a whale trainer at SeaWorld. 

What's the first concert you attended?
I genuinely do not remember the first concert I attended. I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee, so going to concerts was a very regular thing that we did. I have literally been to hundreds.

What is one thing about you that surprises people?
Something about me that surprises people is that when I was in middle & high school, math was my least favorite subject. I think this makes me a unique math teacher because I can relate to my students when they encounter frustrations as they learn higher-level mathematics. It is my hope to assist students in a way that will prevent them from becoming frustrated with mathematics & help them build their confidence in their abilities to do math successfully.

What was your first job?
My first job was at AMC 20 Theatres! I worked almost every position, ate a lot of buttery popcorn, and watched plenty of movies (for free)!

If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be?

If I could become an expert in something instantly, it would be Wing Chun (a form of Kung Fu)! Truly inspired by watching IP Man movies and hearing the sounds associated with each move!
 
What does success mean to you?
Success to me means overcoming fears, creating my own happiness, and doing what my heart desires.
