Nancy Kuei

English Teacher

I believe in the type of learning that blooms beyond the walls of a classroom, the borders of a country, and the confines of a comfort zone. It pushes us to examine the world and ourselves critically, to break unnecessary boundaries, and to act conscientiously. My goal is for my students to continue to ask questions and search for answers long after leaving my classroom. I hope to give them a strong foundation to become lifelong learners.
