Teacher turned administrator and dad William Kim, who also happens to be Jerry's childhood friend, joins the KAP Podcast to share his story on how he fell into and in love with teaching and his tips for navigating parenting and school from his unique perspective.
William Kim is a first-generation Korean American born and raised in California. Education is a second career for Will, and he was drawn to schools because of the direct impact he could make on system inequities in this country. Will strongly identifies as a lifelong learner and loves to challenge students to explore the world around them and to create a better future for their communities. He started his teaching career in Rancho Mirage, CA as a middle school and high school science teacher. He went on to serve over 10 years as a physics teacher, advance physics teacher, public purpose coordinator, faculty mentor, and a school administrator. Most recently, Will served as the Dean of Culture and Instruction at Summit: Rainier in San Jose, CA. (Source: summitps.org)
