Local

All teacher candidates undertake practica in local schools throughout BC’s Lower Mainland where they are mentored by one or more experienced, caring school advisor/s as well as their UBC faculty advisor. Each district has its unique culture, areas of emphasis, highlights and priorities — not to mention a cadre of inspiring educators and leaders.

Candidates are placed in Abbotsford, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, Mission, New Westminster, North Vancouver, Vancouver, Richmond, Surrey and West Vancouver.

I was placed at a secondary school in the Vancouver School District, and I was treated with nothing but respect, enthusiasm, compassion, and professionalism. The school itself is quite large (both infrastructure and student enrolment), yet I felt a strong sense of community and belonging for both students and staff. I managed to be involved in a variety of events and activities, and was so fortunate to be able to teach six different classes over the long-practicum.
