I have had the privilege to lead an impressive career as a secondary school teacher and a university course lecturer for over19 years working in both United Kingdom and in Canada. In 2018, I was received the certificate of achievement for the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence. I have also been featured in several well-known publications including the Canadian Press, Journal of Beliefs and Values in Religion & Education, and the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC).
I am an educator first, scholar and a rising leader in teacher education and religious literacy and diversity, I have spent hours mentoring pre-service teachers and assisting in-service teachers with curriculum design that shape and create students’ opportunities to learn. I examine the ways in which teachers are prepared for and navigate cultural, and religious influences student learning, identity and development.
In addition to my teaching and research, I do substantial activism. I was appointed as the community representative to the Regional Committee for English Language Health and Social Services Access Programs in the Montreal Region. And I was awarded with the Activist of the Year by ByBlack.com.
I am the proud co-founder of the Centre for Civic Religious Literacy, and now the Director of Learning for K-12. I am committed to helping educators with diversifying their curriculum and specifically looking at the religious literacy and purposeful dialogue.
