Ms. Kim Hwang
I want second graders to LOVE learning, be proud of themselves and respectfully connect with others and the world in which they live. I believe that building a cohesive and strong classroom community of learners is important. It's exciting to watch second graders reach their full potential. I also place a high premium on growing positive working relationships with parents. I look forward to a great year.
Outside of school, I love to spend time with family and friends. I enjoy trying new things. I have many interests: art, sewing, music, traveling and I love to read books written by African American authors. I also have four dogs and 1 cat.
