I look forward to meeting you this year!
I have taught English as a Second Language full-time at UFV since 2000, and part-time before that. Prior to coming here, I held English language teaching positions in various cities in the Lower Mainland of B.C., as well as overseas. Prior to that I was a music and drama teacher both privately and in the K-12 system. And prior to that I taught swimming and lifeguarded for years to put myself through university. You could say that I’ve been a teacher of some sort for most of my life!
I believe that students should learn or improve their language skills in a step-by-step, logical manner, while at the same time having fun and enjoying their classes and the entire language learning process.
Over the past many years that I’ve been with the department, I’ve taught all of the courses that have been offered. I also enjoyed teaching at UFV’s campus in Chandigarh, India, one summer, and hope to do so again.
