Joseph Kim

I was born in Anaheim, California and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. I am of Korean ethnicity, and I do speak Korean fluently as my parents were teachers/professors (in classical music) in South Korea and taught me the culture, language, and customs. After graduating from college, I came to Chengdu to work for my uncle, who runs a business here. Since then I have taught the SAT, TOEFL, IELTS, and sent numerous Chinese high school students mainly to America to college as a guidance counselor. Just a few months ago in July, I got married to my beautiful wife, Jiin, in Chicago. This is my first year at CDIS teaching secondary science. It’s been great beginning a new journey together with my wife at a new school.
