My name is Mena. I grew up in Ottawa, Ontario. I have a bachelor of commerce and a minor in economics from Carlton University. I knew I loved teaching ever since I was a TA for two university courses in my undergrad. When I graduated from university in 2010, I got a job as a primary teacher in an international school in the Middle East. I have worked in that school for four years. Then, I decided that I want to learn more about curriculum and creative ways to teach; so I decided to get my bachelor of Education from Ottawa University. I am very excited to teach grade one in BCCIS! I hope to pass all my experience and knowledge to my students in a positive way.
