Hi, and welcome to my page! My name is Katie! I am currently studying at York University in the Faculty of Education. Before this, I received my Bachelor’s Degree at Wilfrid Laurier in 2013, majoring in Honour’s English and minoring in Psychology. I then moved on to receive my Master’s Degree at Wilfrid Laurier University in 2014, where I focused on Gendered Studies in Literature.
My dream has always been to become a teacher, even when I was 5 years old, I knew this was the road I wanted to travel down. I never had a teacher who didn’t influence this decision in some way. Call me lucky, or fortunate (whichever you prefer) but I was blessed to have great teachers throughout my career, who demonstrated to me the value that teachers bring to student’s lives. My passion has always been to help people, and I have tried to do this in some way or another throughout my life. I believe that teachers can change the world, and I hope that one day I can be the kind of teacher who does exactly that.
