Brian Marshall

K-12 Student Affairs Coordinator @Taejon Christian International Schoolimg_6791

Brian Marshall is currently the Student Affairs Coordinator for TCIS. This is Brian’s 9th year as a school administrator. One of his interests is to continue learning about ways to support teachers and students growth as human beings. One way to consider this issue is to look at the coaching model to consider how the use of questioning can aid people in becoming more self-directed. Questioning also helps with reflection and as people grow in their abilities to self-reflect, they grow in their ability to make improvements in their lives.

Sea-Yun Pius Joung

Student @Taejon Christian International Schoolimg_6416

Having spent most of his life abroad, from Australia, through to Norway, Sea-Yun has been able to learn several life tools. The first is the ability to adapt to a given culture. At the most fundamental level, Sea-Yun has learned how different cultures have different histories (history being derived from “historia”, being also the root word of “history”). The shared memory of the ups and downs of history seems to be what defines a country and its culture. So, you ask, which culture he is from? Well, he loves to eat Kimchi at his meals, but he also enjoys watching AFL (Aussie Rules Footy), while he also loves to admire the beautiful Nidaros Cathedral.


Seoyoon Song

Student @Daejeon Yongsan High Schoolimg_6786

SeoYoon Song is currently attending Yong San High School in Daejeon. She would like to take this opportunity to share the importance of gratitude that she learned through her experience in high school as one of the members of student council for the past three years. The topic ‘rethink’ reminded her of a project she directed in her school which most of the students came together to show their appreciation to the staff members of the school. This project became viral leading other schools to do the same. She learned how much warmer it felt around her when people appreciated what one another did and would like to encourage other people to show their appreciation just like her.
