My name is Justin Ching, and I’m a rising sophomore from Duke University. I enjoy the simple things in life, including, but not limited to, nice food, good TV, and all things Kanye West related.
I’m ultra excited for this summer, as both education and South Korea are things that I am very interested in. South Korea is in such a fascinating place in its history currently, an emerging world power and cultural force that is not without its own social and political problems (also I used to really like K-pop but that is secondary okay). Education and pedagogy is something that I am very invested in as well, last year I taught English in Taiwan and continued to teach through service-learning courses during my freshman year. I love learning about new ways to teach, and really admire the effort and impact good teachers have on their students.
I’m very grateful that I get to share this experience with you guys, as I am certain both me and my students will have so much to learn from each other. It’s gonna be boomin’.
