I teach primarily in the Humanities – English and Social Studies. I spend my days inhabiting worlds created by William Shakespeare, Agatha Christie, and Thomas King. When we explore such worlds, we are able to see how people lived, what they thought, what they said. Literature unlocks empathy; it inserts itself into our lives and forces us to see others in a new light. When we share these stories with others, they unlock minds and create connections; the world becomes that much closer.
