JOELY B.

Joely is an Ontario Certified Teacher and recent graduate of Ontario Tech University’s Bachelor of Education (Primary/Junior) program. She has experienced three elementary practicum placements in the York Region District School Board – specifically in Thornhill, where she was born and raised. Here, she developed best practices for writing lesson plans that engage all students and strive to meet every individual learner’s needs through Universal Design for Learning and Differentiated Instruction. This has motivated her to register for the Special Education Part 1 additional qualification in Winter 2024. Before becoming a teacher candidate, Joely graduated from Ontario Tech with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Communication and Digital Media Studies. During both of her degrees, she worked part-time as a writing peer tutor, supporting students in various undergraduate programs with their research, planning, and essay-writing skills. However, this is not where Joely’s passion for helping others began. It was her own Kindergarten experience that influenced her career aspiration, even skipping ski trips in Grades 4 and 5 to volunteer in her former teacher’s Kindergarten class. She has since been able to expand her skills in leadership, organization, and patience as a cabin counsellor, and now unit head, at Camp Robin Hood, a place in which she has spent every summer since she was five years old. Joely loves music, having spent her elementary school years in piano lessons and her high school years in a vocal music arts program. She also enjoys baking, going on walks with her loved ones, and cuddling with her two cats, Will and Grace.

“Shaun Ford, you are awesome!  You were tremendous. I’ve learned a tremendous amount of tips on how to start writing my paper even if I don’t have the time…I will definitely be trying these in the future!  I thank you for everything!” – Writing Retreat Participant

“I learned many things that I will apply to my writing, so thank you very much, Shaun!” – Writing Retreat Participant

“I had to commute from two towns over, take time off work, and come to campus on a Saturday morning at 6 a.m., and Shaun made this retreat worth all of the burden. This is the kind of programming that I expect. My confidence in my abilities and even finding joy in writing have all increased dramatically in only one-and-a-half days! Shaun is a fabulous facilitator, teacher, and tutor. I was formerly disappointed with the lack of support I experienced in my program before Shaun created this programming. Thank you, Shaun!” – Writing Retreat Participant

Sometimes you can just look around and see people just totally engaged with what he’s lecturing about.” – Anonymous survey respondent
