Yep, that was me at Rose Avenue! I was busy doing my ultra running but fit in a year there. A big challenge but I lived close by (just across the bridge in Riverdale) and loved teaching a class so full of different cultures. But being stuck out in the portable was a drag! We baked in summer, I'm sure you can understand -- I'd walk around with a spray can full of water spraying students if they were on task! But I get emails from time to time from students and family there - so I guess I made a difference and really that's the bottom line about "teaching".

Hope you find some stuff here to help you. I started this as a kind of hand made thing. Just a way to make education free and easier for teachers -- avoiding all the commercialization. Cheers and great for hear from someone who's been to Rose Avenue!

Hello Deanna,

Welcome to EFL Classroom! Just want to add a personal hello – it is my intention to have our community be personal, cooperative and in a word – “human”.

Always a big greeting to a fellow Canuck!

Please see our Welcome Message for lots of useful information about the community.

Let's make a great teaching and learning community together. I look forward to your participation and learning more about yourself as a teacher and learner.

Happy learning and teaching,


"Teaching is the art of assisting discovery."
