Paula Parker BEd, BA University of Alberta
Edmonton Catholic School District (over 15 years)

Paula joined us in January 2011 and her student feedback was phenomenal - in fact perhaps the best of any of our instructors. In her words

I have been enjoying the experience of teaching English 30-1 and 30-2 for the past seventeen years in the Edmonton Catholic School District. Several of these years have been spent at Archbishop O'Leary High School, although I have also taught at Louis St Laurent and Fresh Start earlier on in my teaching career. I am currently teaching at Cardinal Collins High School Academic Centre. Marking diploma exams every year allows me the opportunity to continue the professional development of learning what Alberta Learning is looking for from my students; I can then share this experience with not only my students, but those of you preparing for your English 30/30-2 diplomas that attend our RTD sessions. Our time together will include preparation for both the Part A and Part B portions of the Diploma Exam. Students who have attended Rock the Diploma courses have expressed that our time together definitely benefited them and they felt much more prepared for their exam; establishing that confidence is sometimes half the battle! I look forward to the opportunity to help you prepare for your English diploma.
