Welcome back everyone! It sure has been a different start to the school year, but the level of excitement around campus for the past few days with people moving back in has been amazing. We are thrilled to be joining the Grade 11 house this year, and we hope that over the next few weeks, we can get to know each of you even better!
Mr. Kim has been a houseparent at SMUS on and off since 2014 and a math/ science/ ADST teacher since 2018. He is actually a graduate of SMUS, having spent his Grade 6 to Grade 12 years at the school. During his time as a student, he really enjoyed playing on the soccer and rugby teams and playing his trombone in various bands and orchestras. In his off-time, Mr. Kim enjoys playing FIFA 20, watching Premier League soccer and playing soccer. He is always willing to chat with you, especially about soccer, rugby and soccer 😉
Mrs. Kim is also a SMUS graduate, having spent her Grade 7 to 12 years at the school. While she was a student here, she rocked the stage in various musicals, dabbled in volleyball and played the viola in several orchestras. She has always been into the sciences, which has led her to become a research associate as a Masters student at the University of Victoria. She currently works in a lab that studies the MECP2 protein and Rett Syndrome. If any of you have science questions… You know whom to ask!
We are both excited to be starting this new chapter in boarding with everyone. We both believe that with the right attitudes and protocols in place, we can continue to navigate our way around this global pandemic and strengthen the bonds that already exist amongst boarding students and houseparents. If you are ever confused, stuck or generally curious, you are ALWAYS welcome to come knock on our door and ask for a chat – it’s what we love to do!
See you around 🙂
