Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

English Language Development (ESL)

School of Access

Kirsten has been working as an instructor in ELD since 2013, where she taught a range of courses in both the BESL and the C & AP streams.  Most recently she has also enjoyed the opportunity to work collaboratively in specialized courses such as Health Career ELS and ELD PN2. Prior to moving to Victoria , she worked at the English Language Institute at UBC for 16 years as a language instructor and program coordinator. The aspects she values most in her work at Camosun are being able to promote learner autonomy through the development of language learning strategies and working with a great team of colleagues.
