Hi, I'm Wanda!

I am truly PASSIONATE about working in the Education field in Vancouver, BC in Canada. I believe that education, no matter what topic I'm covering, can be delivered in a way that is EXCITING, stimulating and enjoyable.

 

This is why I put in extra effort to include not just theoretical but also PRACTICAL information,  facilitate interesting thought-provoking discussions, plan engaging activities and incorporate interactive elements into my classes. I also LOVE to laugh, joke and giggle when I am teaching a class, so hopefully people like my humour too! LOL
