I was born in S. Korea, but grew up in Rancho Cucamonga. I fell in love with the subject of history due to the influence of my U.S. History teacher, who was life-changing. It is my goal to be that kind of influence to all of my students. I am married to a college math professor, who shares my passion for teaching. We have two wonderful and rapidly growing sons.
