To be a teacher was not my career goal, but having done this job in the public system for 20 years, and teaching overall for 25 (five years in Japan doing what most people do when they are there – teaching conversational English), I can honestly say I love it and am glad that this is where life took me. I was born in Revelstoke, BC, and left to come to Victoria to go to UVic in 1982, and essentially never left (Victoria, not UVic! Although this is my third go-round at UVic, having attended in the 80s, 90s, and now 10s).
One notable thing you will experience about me over the next two years, is seeing me in a costume – some identifiable characters, and some quite random – and I don’t always have a reason for wearing them. 🙂
