Transcript of Lisa Hatfield: CI Program

I like trees. They do nice things for our world, and they also provide an apt metaphor for our own lives. Lisa Hatfield's Tree My roots are in South Korea and the United States. I was 4 when I immigrated with my family. I consider myself part of the 1.5 generation of immigrants and English as my first language (though if you speak Korean around me, I can understand a bit so be careful what you say!) My trunk, my core, and what keeps me grounded is my mother's story. She was born at the end of WWII and a few years before the Korean War. Her home was occupied by others her entire childhood. Being very poor in a war-torn country, she did not experience the joy of going to school -- primary, secondary, or otherwise. I grew and developed because of the environment that surrounded me. I am grateful daily to this country's public education system -- I loved school and still do! I attended schools in the Beaverton School District and received my BS in Journalism from the University of Oregon, my MAT from Lewis & Clark College, and an MA in English Literature from PSU. I taught at the high-school level for 7 years before working in higher education. I've been at PSU for nearly 9 years now and currently am the director of the Learning Center. John and I married in 1999. He's an avid cyclist and a software engineer, in that order. He is the strongest branch of my tree. I have been able to experience much of the forest, traveling to many places far and near. Gaining perspective is a value I hold dearly. Yunji, my 5-year-old daughter, returns me full circle to my roots. She fills every one of my branches and every one of my leaves.
