Reading, Writing, Math, Science

Ms. Han’s passion for teaching started in high school when she began helping young children in her neighborhood in NY with their homework. She began her teaching career in South Korea, her home country, where she was a Kindergarten Teacher at an international school. After two wonderful years of teaching, she returned to New York to attend Teachers College at Columbia University to obtain her Masters in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. Since then, she has taught grades K-3 in New York City Independent schools including the Dalton School. Ms. Han believes that true learning takes place when children are in a nurturing environment where they feel confident, successful, and engaged with the world around them. She encourages them to ask questions, take risks, and become efficient problem solvers. She has experience with various literacy and math programs, and adapts them to meet the needs and interests of each student she works with.
