Around Friendship #17: Featuring Kun Ye Booth

Can you talk about your journey to becoming Resident Principal at Technology Preparatory High?
When I was in college I thought I would become a doctor, so I majored in biology and planned to go to medical school. After more research, I found that I loved education and really wanted to teach.

My first teaching position was in Prince George’s County. I learned about Friendship Public Charter School and interviewed at Friendship Blow Pierce, where I taught for three years. I was the Department Chair for Science and was named the 2010 Blow Pierce Teacher of the Year. I went on to become an Instructional Coach at Friendship Collegiate Academy. After that, I became Academy Director and helped design the Health Sciences Academy as part of our National Academy Foundation grant. At Friendship Collegiate Academy students are able to learn about many different fields. There are academies for engineering, IT and health sciences. Now I am the Resident Principal at Technology Preparatory High. I am currently pursuing a doctorate degree in Educational Leadership from Bowie State University.
