Meet Sunhee Hampton

Hello! I am Sunhee Hampton, Instructional Coach at President Avenue Elementary School. 

This is my first year at this school and I feel honored to be a part of this heartwarming community.

Here is a little bit about me…

I was born in Seoul, South Korea.  Our family came to the United States in 1981 and we resided in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silverlake.  I attended an LAUSD school from Kindergarten through 3rd grade then moved to Norwalk.  I am the youngest of 4.  All of my siblings and parents live in the Los Angeles basin. 

I live in Orange County with my husband and two children, son 15 and daughter 5.  We try our very best to spend time doing things outdoors.
