My name is Kaleena Carter, and I genuinely enjoy my job as an educator. I have been developing my craft as a teacher for over ten years now. I am originally from Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University, majoring in Mathematics for Secondary Education with a minor in the French Language for Teaching. I currently hold a Masters in Fine Art and am presently pursuing a second Masters of Art in Educational Technology. I have a strong love for mathematics technology and the arts and am enjoying how they intersect in my teaching. I teach Algebra II with Trigonometry, AP Statistics, and AP Calculus at the moment, however, I have experience with other courses as well. I began teaching in Michigan and then moved to California and taught for a while there. I then started my adventure in teaching internationally back in 2013. I have called Seoul, South Korea, my home ever since.
Aside from teaching math, I enjoy getting involved in extracurricular activities. I coach the high school competitive cheer squad at KKFS and am also the coach of the peewee cheer club for the elementary students. I enjoy engaging students who have an interest in problem-solving, so I also co-sponsor the 'Mu Alpha Theta' Chapter here at KKFS. The newest club that I am sponsoring is 'Girl Up.' I continue to look forward to building new relationships with the student body! In the start of the 2015 school year at my current school, Korea Kent Foreign School, I took on an additional role as the onsite College Counselor. I help students complete their high school years with ease by supporting them in their quest for higher education. This role has helped me create an even stronger relationship with the student body.
Some of my hobbies include yoga, painting, designing, shopping, and learning anything new. I also enjoy traveling and have been to Europe, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, China, and Hong Kong, to name a few. I enjoy taking care of my cat and watching the occasional K-Drama. If I am not busy creating art, I spend my free time volunteering in a curatorial collective, so my weekend activities usually involve supporting local artists, artist-run spaces, and creators. I recently got married and am excited to start my new life with my husband and cat!
