Mrs. Kim has always inspired me to keep learning and keep trying even when the math (and life) got a little tough.
She would explain math in a way that made sense, and when it didn’t, she would have another way of explaining at the ready.
I remember one day when the calculus class was discussing career options and I had been struggling with my decision of wanting to teach, Mrs. Kim helped me realize that teaching really could be ideal for me.
Even after graduation, I keep in touch with Mrs. Kim, and she always asks how school is going and encourages me to keep going.
I had several teachers tell me not to even waste my time becoming a teacher and that it is not worth it, but Mrs. Kim never did.
She really an amazing teacher who continues to care even after the student leaves her classroom.
