“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” – Deuteronomy 6:4-7
Led by the Holy Spirit, Mrs. Hwang accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and Lord at the tender age of five. Therefore, she never underestimates a young person’s walk with God. As a result, it was no surprise that she found her calling to teach to share the love of Christ. Before she came to HCA, Mrs. Hwang taught in public elementary school, high school, and also gifted education in the states of California, Maryland, and New York. She began her professional teaching career in 1995, but took over 10 years off to be at home with her boys. In 2017, she returned to the classroom at HCA.
Mrs. Hwang, a deaconess, is very active in various ministries. Her husband, a tentmaker, is in full-time ministry as the Mission Director at their church. She and her husband also serve on the board of a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian organization. Their two boys have attended HCA since kindergarten and Preschool. Mrs. Hwang is grateful to have a family that loves the Lord and desires to make Him known!
Mrs. Hwang loves to see her students grow and glow. In her classes, you will see discipleship, stewardship, and community wired together to cultivate creative, reflective, responsive, and active attitudes from a Biblical worldview. Hearts and minds are wired to “form good habits for a lifetime” with a growth mindset attitude in Christ! Because we were created to give God glory and reflect His love and goodness, her class theme is “Be the light!”
Mrs. Hwang also loves multisensory learning to make meaningful connections. Students say her classes are fun! Because higher order thinkers make concrete (via the 5 senses) and abstract (via idea, quality, or emotion) connections, Mrs. Hwang fine tunes her lessons to create thinkers and transformers who engage with their hearts (emotions), souls (spirit), minds (intellect), and strengths (multi-sensory). She purports that the synergism of the whole being makes learning purposeful, applicable, and transformational. Ultimately, Mrs. Hwang wants to instill in her students this life practice: that no stone should be left unturned when it comes to what we can surrender to the Lord because the Light of the World touches all areas of our lives.
