EREM KHALFAN, OCT
Director of Education
I consider myself a life-long learner. With a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Western Ontario in Psychology and a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree from Ryerson University in Fashion Marketing, I set off in an exciting career that had me travelling across the globe as a Marketing and Communications professional in the fashion industry. After starting a family, I found myself reflecting on my deeper purpose. The opportunities that a strong education can provide has been monumental in my belief system. I decided to step away from my career and obtain a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Toronto. Now, as an educator, my teaching philosophy encompasses preparing students for their futures as global citizens. As an educator, we hold insurmountable power to influence young minds. Given this power, it is my responsibility to inspire students to be the best version of themselves. This program was developed to build confidence by providing opportunities for critical thinking and skill building in a positive and inclusive environment, in the areas of reading comprehension, written language, public speaking, media literacy, and mathematics.
