Meet Ms. Chanmie Kim
I love teaching because I love seeing students learning new things — that “ah ha!” moment is what I teach for. Ever since I started college, I have been learning more about education — I majored in Educational Sciences, B.A., at UCI, and I have a Master's degree in Teaching - Multiple Subject from Biola University. In addition, I worked as a behavior interventionist for children with autism, ages varying from as early as 36 months to 16 years old.
My teaching philosophy is creating a safe, inclusive environment where students can thrive and discuss their ideas without hesitation — I want students to freely share their thoughts and learn from one another. I love seeing things from a new perspective — that being said, I take pictures of loved ones with my unique perspective.
Fifth grade is awesome! As 5th graders are the highest grade at GEA 2 and are in the stage right before entering middle school, I lift each student up with different monthly activities so they can be prepared for middle school, not only academically but mentally and socially as well.
Welcome to My Classroom!
