Bio: I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of McGill in the Kinesiology Physical Education Department. My research is focused around beginning physical education teachers, pedagogy and teacher sustainability. I am also interested in Indigenous youth mentorship and leadership. My experience with SLC has in many ways shaped my career path, the people I work with, and my research interests.
Inspirational Quote: “Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.” -Mary Jean Irion
