Sam teaches because he himself wants to learn, and he finds Science 10 is an excellent opportunity to model this approach to life, and spark genuine interest in the world we live in. Take this course for a fascinating and challenging journey in science, that covers (and goes beyond) the BC curriculum.



Your Teacher – Emily Duncan

emily200-1Emily is passionate and sometimes overly enthusiastic about math, but she also helps her students appreciate real-world science (Math FTW, though). She has years of experience STEMing with a variety of students from young teenagers to mature adults, sparking their passion for how the world works. Still a learner herself, she plans to go back to school to become a certified teacher. While she is a true local; Fraser Valley born-and-raised, a B.Sc, Mathematics from UBC Okanagan, she also has big plans to see the world. When Emily isn’t being a nerd about math, you can find her googling snow reports for the local mountains and itching to get outside. Emily usually doesn’t write about herself in the third person.
