Joon Young

I was born in  South Korea and in my family, we had three boys and we always played outside together. That is why I became very active, energetic, and athletic. Not having had digital gadgets at that time, I had a lot of time to play with peers outdoors and on the playground. This provided me with the opportunity to develop social skills.

Following in my father’s footsteps, I studied civil engineering. After graduation, I came to Canada to improve my English and it did not take much time to fall in love with Canada because of its cultural diversity. It was a great benefit for me to experience various cultures in one country. Although I majored in engineering, I was always interested in early childhood education. That is because I wanted to make a contribution to our society by helping children become responsible adults. So I studied Early Child Education in Toronto and completed the course in 2016. My goal is to introduce various cultures to children, support their development, and positively guide their behaviors. In addition, maintaining a safe and healthy environment will be my top priority. Finally, every child has different needs and it will be my responsibility to meet their needs.
