Once again, Welcome! My name is David Hyun and I am a senior at Houghton College majoring in Chemistry and Adolescence Education. I was born in South Korea but lived half of my life in Korea and the other half in China before I came to Houghton for college studies. I attended Korean public schools, Chinese public schools and I graduated from an international high school in China. It is my hope that my experience in different school settings could be helpful in our journey to become great teachers. My current goal is to return to China after graduating from Houghton to teach in an international school. I am also planning on pursuing the Master’s degree in chemistry education after 2-3 years of teaching. I will most likely be teaching in a suburban, and a city setting, but I also look forward to teaching in diverse settings as I gain more experience. I will try to post helpful information on teaching chemistry and how we can help students to be literate in chemistry on this blog. To begin, I found a website called FunBased Learning that has many different games teachers can use in a classroom. If you click on the hyperlink it would direct you to the first game, the element quiz.

    1. Before I came to Houghton I lived in the suburban/Urban setting in Korea and China, so I’m very familiar with the setting and its culture. In this semester I’m trying to look at different literacies involved in science education and how they could be taught most effectively.


  1. You have so many different educational opportunities that are very valuable as a teacher. Are you planning on getting your Master’s degree in chemistry education in China or in the United States?


  2. I believe that your various educational experiences with different education systems must have helped you to grow as a student and also as a future teacher. And you mentioned that you are looking forward to go to graduate school in the US; is there any specific reason for that ?


  3. David, I think it is awesome that you see that you gained something important in your development in an international school and that you want to return to similar context so that you can participate in that important work :). We have MANY international schools asking for our graduates, so if you need/ want any help in getting connected- let me know :).
