Teacher Stories

Angela Gillis

Halifax

“The learning environment has changed a great deal. Students are vulnerable and often don't have the supports they need.”

Elementary teacher Angela Gillis has taught every grade during the course of her 20 year teaching career, and the ability to make a lasting impact on a student’s outlook is what drew her to the job she loves. “I was looking to make a difference” Angela said. “Teaching has a lot of meaning for me—I think I can make a difference, and the students have an impact on my life.” She is energized by spending one-on-one time with her students to make sure they are receiving the attention they deserve, and wants to build an education system that supports her and her students.
