Jen Young’s dream was to be an elementary school teacher. He took a part time job at the World of Wonders Science Museum to work with birthday parties. When the teaching position of educational program coordinator opened up, he went for it.
“I fell in love with the place and I fell in love with the people,” he said. “I get to do my dream, which is teaching and I love it.”
On Jan. 24th, he will be working at the museum’s Bugology event, where children can see, touch and learn about many insects. Young took some time on a recent morning to talk about what children can expect at the event.
