Hi! My name is Tess and I fill two roles: Cohort 2 Representative and the Research and Resource Officer. I received my Bachelor of English with honours from Mount Royal University. In my time off I love to cook, run outside, hangout with friends and drink fine wines while watching my favourite movie Dead Poet’s Society! I wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. My kindergarten teacher said to my parents, “Tess sees herself more as a teacher in the class than a student.” My quirk of following her to the blackboard and mimic every move she did while teaching did nothing to help my case – I was destined to be a teacher. For the first years, I would say don’t stress! It is easy to feel overwhelmed with the uncertainties present in this climate – I promise you will figure things out. Talking to your friends in your cohort is the best therapy!
