Kwon gets to CPAA through Teach For America


She is a new Fremont teacher who runs marathons in her free time. Caroline Kwon teaches Physiology at College Preparatory & Architecture Academy.

Kwon is originally from New Jersey. She attended Wellesley College in Massachusetts.

When the Teach for America program asked her to work at CPAA, she said she accepted it because she wanted to work in the Bay Area.

Kwon’s main concern about teaching is her students not doing their best.

“It frustrates me that some students only want to ‘pass.’ I hope that they will push themselves more than that because they are totally capable of achieving more,” said Kwon.

Outside of school, Kwon enjoys baking, playing sports and listening to music.
