Biography: I love training students how to realize Herodotus’ counsel to inquire/investigate into the past in order to better understand the present and build a viable future based on the principles of social justice and equality. Philology, both in Greek and English, is my other major passion and I enjoy helping his students develop linguistic, cultural and media literacy as well as effective communication skills. I’m an avid soccer fan and enjoy playing recreationally with my friends, daughter, son and wife. My family dedicates significant time and energy in traveling to new places, meeting new people and cultures, and looking for new recipes and cooking ideas. I equally love fiction and non-fiction.

Biography: After 10 years as a reporter in various remote and chilly locales across the country, I found my passion in teaching a discipline I love. I’ve taught in three other Ontario independent schools and find UCC boys both deeply engaged and engaging. I love discussing history and politics with boys in and outside of class and I’m a big believer in classroom role play. I’m an addicted runner who coaches cross-country at the school and works with Ontario Model Parliament, the Politics Club and runs the Begbie History Contest. I’m the grateful mother of two young children who think there’s a dragon under the crest in the UCC front foyer.
