Meet the Principal

Dr. Yu

Dr. Yu holds her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Special Education, a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Doctor of Education in Ethical Leadership. With twenty-five years of educational experience, we welcome her knowledge and insight in growing YHALE as a thriving Mandarin-English & Korean-English charter school of Georgia.

“I am so thankful to be a part of YHALE. As an educator, I look forward to learning, growing, and positively impacting those around me. I have been an educator for twenty-five years, having experiences in both private and public schools, as well as working abroad, in colleges and in businesses. I understand the challenges and impact of growing schools, businesses, programs, and people around me. Adding value to wherever I work, I am dedicated to raising the standard of excellence. I also believe in raising leaders and cultivating a strong supportive community and culture. I hope to be innovative in directing, redirecting and empowering individuals around me. Joining YHALE in its first stages of growth is both exciting and hopeful. We have a wonderfully dedicated staff, amazing supportive parents and a committed Governing Board. I look forward to growing with YHALE in every way. It really is a privilege being an integral part of Yi Hwang Academy of Excellence.”
