About our speaker: Shannon has vast experience teaching both youth and adults since 2000, when she first started teaching outdoor education for the Toronto District School Board. Since then, she has really honed her ability to engage students in an array of learning environments. She enjoys teaching a range of important topics related to wellness, safety awareness, physical fitness. law enforcement tactics and mental health.
Working in a male-dominated profession for 15 years and being embedded in a sport that is also predominantly male, has led Shannon to be a true advocate for gender equality in all facets of society. Stepping outside of her comfort zone to challenge stereotypes has provided her with a source of growth and a sense of empowerment. Through M Power, she wants to help the young ladies of the community achieve the same.
Shannon has earned a Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies from the University of Waterloo. She has also completed her Teaching Effectiveness certificate through Humber College.
