Brief Biography: Teaching runs in Mr. Park’s family. “My mother and father were both teachers,” he explains, “and my great-grandfather founded a school and an orphanage in Eastern North Carolina.” He was further inspired to become an educator by some of the amazing teachers he had in high school.
Mr. Park has experience in both brick-and-mortar and other cyber schools. He taught social studies at Owen J. Roberts High School for nine years before becoming both a teacher and administrator at PA Virtual Charter School. In addition, he has also served as a homeschool evaluator.
