Ryan Harrington


<a href="" rel="nofollow">Ryan Harrington</a> is a first-year teacher, currently teaching Grade 7. He graduated from the University of Victoria in 2006 with a degree in human geography, focusing on third world development and environmental studies. <br> <br> He moved to Taiwan as a way of combining a love for travel with a means of support. He taught English in a small private school, and realized that teaching was something he really loved and wanted to do as a career. After almost five years in Taiwan, he moved home. Harrington graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree from SFU in 2012, and shortly after landed a job with the Surrey School District.

I'm A First-Year Teacher And This Isn't What I Signed Up For

I wish I had more teaching experience or lesson plans from years past to fall back on, but I don't. I struggle to keep things together, and all the inspiration I've built over the past year is slowly being eroded away. I try to put on a smiling face for my students, but my morale is taking a beating. This isn't what I signed up for.
