Catherine was already passionate about teaching when she joined Selkirk’s TESOL program in 2014 upon arriving in Canada from France where she mostly taught post-secondary English.
Having chosen the program for its practicum “hands on” opportunities, she also added a “Teaching English to Young learners” certificate to her list of credentials. As a bilingual educator, Catherine was looking for an international certification and experience with engaging, student centered language teaching methods applicable to all age groups in both French and English.
Catherine went on to teach ESL in a Canadian international school in Guiyang, China. She is now back in Canada teaching French immersion in Alberta and can’t wait for an opportunity to move back to the Kootenay side of the Rockies!
