Teaching Background

Kim is currently the Assistant Academic Program Manager for Liberal Arts within Post University’s School of Arts & Science. In 2012, Kim joined Post as an Associate Faculty member and Subject Matter Expert, teaching and developing history and political science courses. In April 2015, she moved into her current position which includes supporting the continued development of courses and instruction within the Liberal Arts department. Before joining the Post family, she taught middle and high school social studies as well as led a grade 7-12 social studies department in the areas of curriculum and instruction.

Teaching Philosophy

Kim loves teaching and the process of learning. She is an advocate for educational opportunity and promoting leadership and growth in our society.

“I believe a lot of what we can apply to improving society comes from our understanding of history and politics.”

Professional and community activities

Teaching and coaching define Kim’s everyday life.

As an active member within the American Association of University Women (AAUW), she is working on leadership projects aimed at empowering young girls in the community.

As a former competitive gymnast, Kim continues to be involved in the sport through coaching recreational and competitive gymnastics at the YMCA and private gym in her local community.

“I believe gymnastics provides a platform to teach children to set goals, work hard, and perform under pressure; helping build confidence in their ability to achieve. These are skills that transcend into education and real-world situations.”

Kim also teaches Sunday religious education classes at her church.

In her leisure time, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children, and running. She is a distance runner who enjoys training for marathons and competing in road races.
