Once a Patriot, always a Patriot. Fourteen years after being a student in Mrs. Frankel's 7th grade language and literature class, Kailey Hak is now the teacher! As Assistant Head of the Middle School, Mrs. Frankel will work closely with Kailey to assure a smooth transition for everyone.

Kailey completed her undergrad at the University of Colorado in Business Administration and Accounting Ethics. Always interested in education and traveling, she moved to Asia to teach English in 2016 where she developed her passion for teaching. She has worked as an educator in International Schools in Bangkok and non-profits internationally in Thailand and Nepal. More recently she has worked with Nepali Youths to develop greater access to education in the Himalayan Region of Nepal, where she advised on the development of a locally led language and arts community center program. Throughout her years working within education she has developed an interest in character building and peace education, which has led her to pursue a Masters Degree in Education and Development from the University College London.

In the years since being a CDS student, Kailey has put the principles she learned as an IB student into action. We are thrilled to have her return to CDS to inspire and teach the next generation of Patriots.
