Mrs. Ha also has a passion for traveling and teaching around the world during her summer vacations. She’s been to many countries such as: Belize, Thailand, Japan, Korea, India, Africa, and Mexico. More recently, she has been traveling to India almost every year to help develop an orphanage and an education center that teaches students from pre-school to the graduate level. She is proud to be a part of this project and was pleased to learn that they have named the center after her (“Marygrace Education Center”). She plans to continue traveling there until the center is complete and fully operational.


With over 13 years in the education field, Mrs. Ha never gets tired of seeing students learn and reach their full potential. Her philosophy of learning is to make every opportunity a learning experience.
