Hello, my name is Samantha Grimberg and I am from Dallas, Texas. I majored in International Studies at the University of North Texas. I have been teaching in Korea for several years now and could not love living here more. I really adore getting to interact with young students every day and for the opportunity to watch them develop into amazing little people. Over the course of the school year, I hope to create a fun learning environment in which your children feel supported in their emotional and academic needs. I am so excited to meet all of my students and hope we have a terrific year together.


Hello! My name is Caitlin Stanley and I am from Cleveland, Ohio. I graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Environmental Studies. I have taught informally and formally in America for many years at an aquarium and schools. Watching children have a spark of excitement from learning something new is what drew me to teaching. I love seeing my students get motivated and grow! Currently, I have taught kindergarten in Korea for 3 years, and am so excited to begin my journey at LOTIS this year! My desire is to help each and every student grow and learn with a positive mindset so that they will have bright and wonderful futures. Let’s have a wonderful year together!


Hello, my name is Collin and I am from North Carolina, USA. I graduated from North Carolina State University and worked as an engineer before switching careers after finding my love for teaching.

Hello, my name is Conner Morgan and I am from Spring, Texas. I graduated from The University of Texas. I hold a degree in East Asian Studies. I also attended Hanyang University while studying abroad. I have taught English for almost eight years in Korea. I like to make my students enjoy learning about English and the world. I believe that a firm understanding in our world greatly benefits a student.
While in Korea, I taught students aged 7 through 15. I truly enjoy teaching younger children. I find that their energy and willingness to learn gives me energy and motivation to be the best teacher I can be. I am truly excited to teach at LOTIS and prepare your child for the future.


Hello! I’m Ms. Stacy. I am originally from Chicago, USA but have lived in Korea for the past three years. I’m TEFL certified and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations, as well as a minor in writing. For the past three years, I’ve taught at a private academy. My age range is from five years old all the way to 15 years of age. With this experience, I look forward to focusing on a more younger class of students, as I believe teaching students at an early age helps for growth later on. I believe students should always work hard in the class, while also having fun and engaging with the content we’re learning. I always make sure my students are hard working and push them to use their critical thinking skills. Lastly, I hope my students can always have fun and look forward to learning English each and every day.
