Community and Volunteer Work

Throughout my secondary and post-secondary education I have been involved in community and volunteer work, and have interacted with student in alternative educational settings – in particular outdoor education and extra-curricular activities. (I also believed that it was important to involve myself in the school community and sponsor extra-curricular activities during my practicum at Elgin Park Secondary, which you may read about here.)

In the University of British Columbia Bachelor of Education program, I also completed three-weeks of community based field experience, where I had the opportunity to teach elementary school students in an outdoors setting at Burns Bog, with the Conservation Society. Along with the B. Ed experience, I also volunteered in the Creative Writing Guild at Kwantlen, supervised the Surrey Day Camps and mentored at Princess Margaret Secondary School.
