Kia ora and 안녕하세요,

My name is Mr. Hyun and I am the proud teacher of Room 24 in the Mahi Tahi team. I am originally from Hanam city in South Korea. I came to New Zealand when I was 16 and I attended Matamata College. Through coaching sports teams and being a mentor for the junior students at Matamata college, I found out that my heart is with working with people which led me to become a teacher! Supporting students to have a sense of achievement and seeing the "lightbulb" go off in their head are one of a few favourite parts of being a teacher.

I'm a huge fan of sports, music, and solving problems collaboratively. I play football on Saturdays and I run the Berkley girls' football team. If you are a big fan of solving problems, I also run the Berkley Epro 8 teams!

Berkley offers many opportunities for people who are willing to "Take Up the Challenge". I will always encourage students to live by this as they may find their life long passion just purely by giving things a go!
