Lorne's Resume

Lorne:

Career Overview:
I’ve spent several years in the classroom. My first experience came when I taught Journalism at an Arts College in Saint John. It made me realize how much I enjoyed teaching as I created a curriculum and taught the basics of journalism to young adults. As a parent with a 7-year-old I also know the joy of working with young children and seeing the world through their eyes.
I worked for many than 20 years in Saint John as a broadcast journalist for Global News and then CBC Radio, which allowed me to immerse myself in the community in areas of social issues, education, First Nations issues, environment, politics, health and the arts.
I am resourceful, adaptable and thorough. I have a lot to share from my experiences. I have worked in several different countries, having lived and taught in various cultures including Muslim countries and an Arctic Inuit community. I am TESL Canada certified-level 2 teacher, with experience teaching ESL in the classroom and as a tutor. I am able to thrive in a dynamic environment and look forward to making a significant contribution in the classroom.
