Several sentiments characterize my motivation in becoming a teacher. The first is that of thanksgiving, to the teachers who have mentored me throughout junior high, high school, and even university. Love follows closely, not in a sentimental manner, but in concrete practice, because I am confident that I can care for and nurture students and co-workers alike in this profession. Finally, I am moved by hope, because I believe that to be a teacher is to place hope in the future ahead.
I am trained to teach business education and English, although I look forward to gaining experience in high school math and drama as well. My previous degrees include a Bachelor of Commerce, concentration in marketing, and a Bachelor of Arts in English Honours; both from the University of Calgary (2013).
I will be teaching English Literature at The Warren School from Sept 2014 – July 2015.
