Miss ChaeUn Hwang
Hello and welcome! My name is ChaeUn Hwang, and I'm the new School Counselor and Anti-Bullying Specialist here at Walter Hill School.
A little bit about me --- I grew up in Seoul, Beijing, and Boston --- which unfortunately means that I'm a sports fan of all things New England --- but even a bigger fan of mental health!
I graduated from University of Massachusetts at Amherst with BA in psychology and dual-minors in Sociology and Asian American Studies.
I went on to work in marketing, where I realized two things: 1) that marketing is awesome and applicable to most aspects of life, and 2) though it is awesome, that the private sector is not for me. Upon realizing these things, I studied K-12 School Counseling at Rutgers Graduate School of Education.
Today, I am a New Jersey state certified K-12 School Counselor, and a National Certified Counselor.
My downtime is filled with working out, tidying and cleaning, and reading and studying on various ways of counseling.
It is an absolute dream come true for me to be working here at Walter Hill School, with everyone so committed to the same goal: teaching (and counseling!) our students to become life-long learners.
Extending again my warmest and coolest welcome to you! Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions or feedback.
With Comet Pride,
