Primary Junior Teacher and Intermediate SSAT Coach
Emmanuel is an elementary school teacher with the TDSB. After teaching for 5 years at the high school level, Emmanuel left the Country Day School to pursue his passion for elementary school. Before settling his roots in Toronto, Emmanuel has travelled all over the world to teach children of all ages. Emmanuel has taught in Asia, Africa, and Latin America with both schools and non-profit organizations. Emmanuel has experience with children of all walks of life, including students on the Autism spectrum, english language learners, and students who experience challenges in a traditional classroom setting. When he is not teaching, Emmanuel is volunteering in the community, playing sports, or spending time with his family.
Emmanuel believes that "teaching is truly about helping a young person to realize their own potential, and feel confident in every aspect of their own life". His favorite quote comes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., " The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
