“Chae immediately impressed me with her ability to help define a new curriculum for the College Prep 10 class…Drawing upon her desire to design curricula, she has designed a plan for portfolios within the College Prep classes that would begin in College Prep 9 with basic requirements and then scaffold additional requirements into the portfolio in subsequent years that will directly address that grade level’s college preparation needs. Her planning and teaching reflect her drive to create a ‘college ready’ culture within her students.”
