Education Department
Jonathan Berry
Hello everyone. My name is Jonathan Berry and it is my great pleasure to be the Social Studies teacher at WICS. I was born and raised in the Greater Boston Area and graduated from Gordon College with a double major in Biblical Languages and Linguistics. I am very passionate about history and languages, and I want to share that passion with every student who walks through our doors. My two main goals as a teacher are to help students grow closer to God and discover the joy of studying something they love.
Yechan Paul Choi
Hello, my name is Yechan Paul Choi. I grew up as a missionary kid in Uganda, and attended an international high school in Kenya. Having grown up in a very international background myself, I am sure I will be able to relate a lot with the students here, and I wish to share my faith and experiences with them here at WICS. I graduated from The University of the South: Sewanee in Tennessee with a major in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science. I believe that mathematics is one of the foundations on which God built this world, and I am very excited to provide a strong mathematical education to the students here.
Alletha Barnett
My name is Alletha Barnett, and I teach science at WICS. I graduated from Evangel University in Missouri, USA, with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Environmental Science. Bringing science to life for students is my passion, and I love using songs, raps, demonstrations, and visual aids to do so. I hope to help raise up the next generation of young people who love God and love science.
Jukyung Mary Yoo
Hello! My name is Jukyung Mary Yoo and I am a teacher in WICS. I graduated from the international department of Yonsei University with a major in economics. Afterwards, I worked in foreign aid organizations in Tanzania and Ethiopia. I would like to share the God of Africa and my experiences with the students and give them a wider world view. I will strive to become a good mentor for the students.
Zach Richardson
My name is Zach Richardson, and I am an English teacher at WICS. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Degree in English-Creative Writing. Several years later, I discovered by accident that I also love teaching, so I went back to school to earn my English Teaching Certification at Millersville University in Pennsylvania. I am excited to help WICS students of all levels achieve their language learning goals. I also hope to introduce them to works of English literature that will capture their interests and imaginations.
Minah Won
Hello, my name is Minah Won. I was born in South Korea and was raised in the USA. I’ve graduated from University of Utah in music. I love students and I am passionate about helping them learn more about music. I wish all students in WICS can praise and worship God with their full hearts through learning.
