Dear BIS family and friends,
Welcome to BIS elementary music class. Here is a little background about me: My name is Sunny Ji-Yeon Chung. This is my 5th year here at BIS. I've immensely enjoyed working with our talented and lovely BIS students. I love that my two sons attending BIS are surrounded by well-mannered, kind, and bright students. The caring teachers and lovely students create a friendly and warm atmosphere in this school, making me proud to be part of BIS.
I studied at the University of Toronto to acquire a Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education. I am both an Ontario and British Columbia certified teacher. Before coming to BIS, I worked at a French Immersion Elementary School in B.C. Canada as the primary music teacher. This school had a similar atmosphere and school culture as BIS; eager students, supportive parents, and collaborative teaching and administrative teams.
Before working as a music teacher, I enjoyed working as a volunteer school mom in my sons' public school in Canada and a Christian school in my neighborhood, helping put up the musical and school concerts. I carry many fond memories of my schools in Canada, and I am so grateful that I can continue to add to them here at BIS with absolutely amazing people I am honored to work with.
My prime goal as a music educator is to help children to utilize music as a tool for expressing their feelings and ideas - in an environment where the students feel safe and welcomed. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about your child or the music program.
I look forward to a year in which we will learn to overcome challenges with a positive and caring attitude.
