Senior Bio and Chemistry Teacher
About:Courtney is a certified member of the Ontario College of Teachers. After graduating from the Concurrent Education program at Brock University with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Chemistry, she quickly found her first teaching job abroad at Hitchin Boys’ School in the UK. During this time, Courtney was responsible for teaching the national UK curriculum of General Science, Chemistry and Biology for grades 7 to 13, which included KS3, GCSE and A-levels. Outside of the classroom, Courtney’s keen passion for travelling and drive to experience new cultures lent her the opportunity to lead groups of students on 2-4 week expeditions through such countries as Zambia, Malawi, Madagascar, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia and Norway.
After five exciting years of teaching abroad, she returned to Canada and began working at Upper Canada College. There, she taught the Grade 9 and 10 provincial Science curriculum, as well as the Grade 11 Chemistry and IB Sports, Exercise and Health Science curriculum.
Whether she’s in front of the class or in a one-on-one session, Courtney loves sharing her passion of Science with those around her.
