Pa Kou discovered her passion for education and equity during her first summer as a Teaching Fellow in 2012. She continued to come back each summer as a Teaching Fellow to grow and sharpen her skills as a teacher. After graduating from the College of Saint Benedict with an Elementary Education degree and a minor in Japanese, she taught for a Saint Paul Public Charter school. Shortly after, she continued her education career in Japan for four years to expand her cultural and education experiences. She’s excited to be back and working with Breakthrough and the community that helped her discover her love for education! In her spare time, she loves to cook, write, workout, and practice her ukulele!
