Staff of the Week
This page is dedicated to the staff members at ICSU. We will be interviewing one staff member each week and asking them about their life inside and outside of the campus. This will provide a great opportunity for both students and parents to get to know the faculty who serve God's purposes at our school.
This week we are featuring Ms. Song.
A Teacher with a big heart
January 21, 2019
This week’s Staff of the week is Ms. Song. Ms. Song was born on August 18, in Evanston, Illinois. She currently teaches English and Language Arts for the 4th and 5th grade. During the interview, Ms. Song told me that she has two brothers name Danny and Sam, and she accepted Christ when she was in 3rd grade. Her favorite sport to play is Soccer because it’s so fast pace and she loved chasing down the opponents and stealing the ball. When asked about her favorite childhood memory, she said, “ My favorite childhood memory was running downstairs as soon as the sun rose to wake up my mom and dad in their bedroom. I would peek in, jump into their bed and lie down right in the middle of them. My mom would then search my whole body, tickling me, to find the ‘off’ button.”
One of her favorite Bible verses is 1 John 3:1-3, where it says, "See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does no know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.”
Ms. Song came to ICSU because she used to teach in California serving different communities filled with students from different backgrounds, but then wanted to go and serve children in Korea who move around a lot and need her help. She has a big heart for children but an even bigger heart for God, so where else would be better than to serve in a place that values both: our school?
