Joe Benge Instructor, English
BEd, MA Adult Education
I have been teaching Technical and Professional Communications to technology students at the Interurban campus since 1995.
I have over thirty years' experience teaching English at the secondary and post secondary levels. I began my career in the Saanich school district at Claremont High School where I taught English and Law and was part of the administrative team.
I also spent 11 years at Humber College in Toronto where I was Chair of the English department at the Lakeshore campus. While there, I taught Report Writing, Composition, and Effective Speaking.
I have a B.Ed from UVic and an MA in Adult Education from Central Michigan University.
I am aware of students' academic and personal needs, and I have a friendly, non-threatening, and effective teaching style. I love my job.
