Graduate Student Ambassador

I’d be happy to answer your questions about graduate studies at Queen’s Faculty of Education, or living in Kingston as a graduate student. Feel free to get in touch with me by email or Twitter; we could also set up a time to meet in person. As a graduate of both the B.Ed and M.Ed programs here at Queen’s, as well as my time so far in the PhD program, I have lots of experience to share with you!
