TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a university instructor for four years before shifting into a high school classroom. I have been teaching at high schools in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the last 13 years. I have taught English, Literacy, History, French, Civics, Careers, Guidance, and Co-operative Education... so a little bit of everything over the years! I currently teach grade 9, 11, and 12 English as well as grade 10 Careers.
