I’ve also been teaching English literature for twenty-five years at the CEGEP level in Montreal, Quebec. My speciality is Alice Munro.
I started teaching after several years abroad: I worked as a flight attendant for two different airlines, one based in Canada and the other in Bahrain, in the Persian Gulf. Earlier in my working life, I taught English as a second language and did clerical work in hospitals and legal clinics. I worked at the Canadian Environmental Law Association in Toronto and volunteered for Ed Broadbent at the International Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Development in Montreal. I did my undergraduate degree in English Literature and Letters at the University of Toronto (Victoria College) and my masters in the same at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
