History teacher Kyong Pak gave birth to a baby girl on June 12. Born in Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Stella Soo-Hyun Spraggs weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. Pak said she has been spending a lot of time in the past few months caring for Stella.
“The first few months have flown by! She is an easygoing baby, happy, calm, and sleeps a lot!” Pak said in an email.
Pak also has a two-year-old son named Spencer. Pak said she has been taking her time off to adapt to her busier life with two kids.
“Having two kids has made daily life a constant juggle! At times it can be exhausting. But, there are also really funny and sweet moments. You find a balance between being really organized and also going with the flow. Something unexpected always happens,” Pak said.
During Pak’s maternity leave, substitute teacher Rebecca Strong is teaching Pak’s classes.
Pak said she has missed her students, the faculty, and the energy of school. She plans to return to campus on Nov. 28, after Thanksgiving break.
