I am a Canadian from Winnipeg, Manitoba, famous as the original home of the real life Winnie the Pooh. I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and English Literature, a Master of Arts in History, and a Bachelor of Education in the fields of Social Studies and English Language Arts. I also have my TESL certificate. Since 1998, I have taught English to students in Japan and China, and also to immigrants who have started a new life in Canada. I also have experience working with students in Winnipeg high schools. My first experience as a foreign teacher in China was in Guangzhou from 2003-2005. I returned to China to work for JESIE in 2014, and have been enjoying Nanjing ever since.
