Bio: I've been teaching English Literature at Carleton University and Theatre at the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Canada for the past 12 years. Now it's time for a new adventure! I'm off to Nekemte, Ethiopia to work as a volunteer with CUSO/VSO. My role as the English Language Improvement Centre Co-ordinator is aimed at providing tools and skills for those students at the College of Teacher Training to enable them to be better teachers when they graduate from their program. Education is a key component in the fight to eradicate poverty. I am looking forward to contributing the skills I have and adding new ones. There is always something new to learn.
