My name is Devon Stokes-Bennett and I teach English 12 and Digital Literacy 12 at WestShore Centre as well as being a technology curriculum coordinator for the district. Dawn Anderson is my team coordinator and former team teacher (see below).
I have taught senior humanities for 8 years and I am most proud of having co-designed the Futures alternative cohort program at WestShore Centre. I have a B.A. in English Literature, a B.A. in Greek and Roman Studies, a B.Ed. in Education (Secondary Humanities) and recently finished my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction through the University of Victoria with a focus on Digital Literacy.
I am excited at the opportunity to continue in my role as a curriculum coordinator while still being able to teach. Although things can get busy, I find the two roles greatly complement each other and I feel very fortunate to be able to do both.

My name is Dawn Anderson and I teach the Futures 11 alternative program at WestShore Centre. The other half of my week is spent as the technology curriculum coordinator for SD62.
After graduating high school I spend a couple years at Vancouver Island University exploring career options and playing varsity soccer. Once accepted into the Education Program at the University of Victoria I start running on the varsity team and exploring the mountains on my bike. After graduating, I worked in a couple districts as a TOC and then got a position at WestShore where I have had the pleasure of teaching all grade 10 courses and co-developing the Futures Program with Devon Stokes-Bennett. I also started to explore post graduate options and have found myself headed down a path towards my master through Simon Frazer University in Technology and Teaching.
I am very excited to be able to work as one of the technology curriculum coordinators again this year as well as teaching at WestShore. Devon and I have quite a few things that we are excited to work on this year and we hope that you will join us on the journey!
