Irene teaches Instrumental Music for grades 9-12 at Seoul American High School, Korea. She received her B.S. from Dakota State University. "I believe every student entering my classroom has the potential to be a virtuoso and deserves the opportunity to develop his or her musical talents. My goal is to create a classroom atmosphere in which students feel comfortable to express themselves without fear of criticism or rejection." As a colleague states, "Irene's knowledge of music and curriculum standards is exceptional. She consistently takes students with little knowledge of music theory and techniques to levels of performance that did not seem possible at the beginning of the school year."
