About the Author

Steph is an engagement, education, and technology expert.

She has coordinated the OCSB elearning program for 4.5 years and assists teachers working to leverage technology from kindergarten to grade 12. She has presented at various conferences across Canada demonstrating how digital tools can be used for differentiation, deepen understanding and to promote activism for social justice.  As she returns to the classroom in September 2022, she looks forward to applying equitable and responsive strategies to engage students from grade 9 – 12 in History, Geography and Social Sciences. She has experience in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, the  New South Wales (Australia) Board of Studies Curriculum,  and taught in Glasgow, Scotland.

  1. Hello Stephanie. I came across your blog trying to create lesson plans for a course. I teach the Intermediate Geography course to students of Nipissing University in Brantford, ON. I also teach full time history and geography at a high school in Brantford. Enjoyed your blog! Always wanted to create one myself, but don’t know where to begin.
