8th Grade Math
Hello! New West! My name is Mrs. Kim and I am the “New” 8th grade math teacher and will be teaching Algebra 1, Geometry, and Math Lab this coming school year. I was born in Kingston, England and spent half of my life in South Korea and the other half in the United States. It was definitely not easy transitioning from one country to another, but at the end, it all worked out and I am finally fulfilling my dreams!
I completed my teaching credential program at California State University, Fullerton and find myself continuously learning everyday as I follow my path as a teacher. Yes, I favor math over any other subjects, but no, I do not play with my calculator during my time outside of the classroom.
I love spending quality time with my friends and family, traveling, hiking, snowboarding, and just about any other outdoor activities. I am more than grateful to be part of New West and cannot wait to meet all of my students for this year! I will do my best in encouraging and supporting all of you, but remember – I will be asking all of you to put your best foot forward and focus all your efforts and positive mind. I very much look forward to an awesome year with all of you!
