Sandra has been teaching in ELD since 2013, after moving from Vancouver where she taught in a private ESL school for four years. She has a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Victoria, an undergraduate degree in English Literature and Creative Writing from Concordia University (Montreal), and a TESL Certificate from International House (Vancouver).
Before teaching English, she worked in literary and scholarly publishing, including McGill-Queen’s University Press and UBC’s journal Canadian Literature. She has also owned and managed her own business, as well as worked for cooperatives and non-profit organizations, primarily in food sustainability, student housing, leadership, health, and education. She approaches teaching as a guide and mentor with the hope that students will develop their learning strategies and a unique voice for future academic and career success.
