5th Grade Lead Teacher
Ms. Park is a Southern California native, but she lived in New York City for the 6 years before moving back to be with family and friends. She feels truly lucky to have joined a school community that embraces the same core values and principles that she does as an educator.
Before moving to New York City, Susanne attended UCLA, where she graduated with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Education. After graduating, she felt the need to explore and gain new experiences, having lived her entire life to date in Los Angeles. Susanne then moved to New York City to attend Teachers College at Columbia University where she received her MA is Elementary Teaching & Curriculum.
In New York City, Susanne dedicated herself to a charter school in Harlem, called Harlem Link, where she taught 2nd grade for 4 years. After being in the classroom for 4 years, she decided to take on a leadership role at Harlem Link, where she worked closely with teachers on how to effectively implement data and assessment in their classrooms. Susanne loves being back in CA and spends her free time reading, hiking with her dog Jack and relaxing with her friends and family on the sunny beaches of LA! Susanne is literate and fluent in Korean.
