Prior to pursuing her career in teaching, Stella graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Kinesiology. Throughout her undergraduate degree, she worked and volunteered in a variety of classrooms and youth groups, which contributed to her passion for teaching children and her love for learning. As a teacher candidate at York University, Stella has had the opportunity to work with students with various academic and behavioural challenges.
Stella currently teaches in a language and literacy enrichment program where she has gained important insight on creating engaging and academically challenging lessons for students in grades 4 to 10. This experience has contributed to her flexibility and attentiveness to her students’ individual needs. Stella’s background in kinesiology has also helped her to maintain a passion for teaching math and sciences up to the grade 9 level. Stella is also a trained SSAT coach who enjoys guiding students through this test-taking process.
Stella also has a strong interest in both personal and professional development. She regularly attends workshops that facilitate her understanding of crucial educational values such as self-advocacy, inclusivity, organization, and mentoring.
