Minsun became a teacher after she met an amazing teacher in middle school who called her an ugly duckling which would turn into a beautiful swan in the future. After 4 years of teaching elementary and secondary school students in private institutes in Korea, she entered the M.A. TESOL program at San Francisco State University to improve herself as an English teacher. After graduation, Minsun wants to go back to Korea with her new knowledge and experience and continues her teaching career. She hopes to be an inspiring teacher like her old teacher.
