Skills & Interests
I have a real capacity to do presentations to inspire and teach, I did a number of presentations at the local schools and organizations while I was living in Zimbabwe. I also took a number of photographs of the children I worked with as well as the environment. I made concrete suggestions for the local teachers to implement and helped them to achieve the goals. Since I know a lot about special needs, I also gave presentations on this area.
If you have done work internationally, where and in what capacity?
While working and living overseas, I worked as an educator and administrator in three different international schools: as Director of Student Services, College advisor and Special Needs Coordinator. I was also in administrative roles.

Hi Laura! Nice to have you on board. I would love to meet with you sometime soon as I am the one who is overseeing the school2school connections. I just met with a student from ed faculty over the weekend to discuss the creation of a McGill campus group. We should connect all the dots and see where your expertise fits in.
Let me know how I can reach you. I can be found at firstname.lastname@example.org
