“The small class sizes and one-on-one interaction with students at Selkirk College is not only beneficial for them but also very gratifying for me as an educator.” – Allyson Perrott, Chemistry Instructor

Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I developed a love for learning at an early age.  While studying for my Ph.D. at Dalhousie University, I was given the opportunity to teach a general chemistry class at nearby Acadia University – and I was “hooked”!

After completing graduate school and teaching at a boarding school in Ontario for two years, I returned to teach at Acadia.  During my four years there, I completed an education degree and married a fellow chemistry instructor.

My husband and I moved westward; first to the University of Regina, briefly to McMaster University, and then to British Columbia.  For the past nineteen years, I have been happily settled in the West Kootenays, teaching my favorite chemistry courses at Selkirk College.
