  • Wendy MuirUCE Junior and Senior High Schools Online Course Director
    “From the time I was a little girl, I wanted to be a teacher. My mom was a teacher and she set up a giant blackboard in my basement, and I would invite the neighborhood kids in to “play school.” Now, it is my work, and I still adore it. I love being able to be the first to teach students a new concept or to use my ability to simplify things to help a foreign student understand a concept that was difficult for them. Mastering English and studying in an all-English immersion environment is incredibly challenging. If they can accomplish these tasks, they can truly do anything. These are a few things that I hope they take away from their time with me, as well as some academic skills that will assist them in their future learning experiences.” She has been teaching foreign languages and acting as a private tutor in all subject areas for the past 15 years.
