Academically, I hold a Doctorate degree in Comparative Literature from Peking University and a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature from Seoul National University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Russian literature from Korea University. I am interested in several academic fields: Comparative literature, Cultural Studies, Film Studies, and Women’s Studies.
After obtaining a doctorate in 2013, I completed a Teacher training program for the Korean language at Seoul National University, and I taught Literature, Film studies, and Women’s studies at Yonsei University and Hanyang University in Korea. In 2016 I moved back to Beijing with my family, and I worked at Beijing BISS International School as an IB MYP and IBDP teacher of Korean Language and Literature. At BISS, I also took on the roles of IBDP Coordinator and TOK teacher and Coordinator. As a member of the IB Educators Network, I work with the IB as a School Visit Team Member and Workshop Leader. Besides that, I have also successfully prepared and completed the IB evaluation visit for the IBDP programme at BISS in 2019.
To keep developing myself as a life-long learner, I have recently completed the Certificate Programme in Advanced Education Leadership at Harvard Graduate School of Education, aiming to better support my IBDP colleagues and students as a programme leader. As a teacher, I have a strong passion for educating young people and encouraging and empowering students to develop into inquiring, knowledgeable and caring life-long learners who can impact the world in positive ways. I want to keep learning and growing with my students and colleagues at BSB Shunyi.
My biggest passions are playing music, dancing, and reading various books. Another big passion of mine is language. I speak five languages: Korean, English, Chinese, Russian, and Mongolian. If time allows, I want to learn Spanish in the future.
