Hi, I'm Roman.
Pleased to meet you!
I am a retired Ontario secondary school teacher with thirty four years of experience. My teaching subjects are English, English as a Second Language, Reading and Special Education.
Certified with the Ontario College of Teachers, I continue to work occasionally as a supply teacher with the Peel District School Board. With a solid understanding of language acquisition and what makes good writing, I can quickly identify the client’s language needs and the necessary teaching strategies to ensure improvement and success. I have also edited two memoirs.
My hobbies including reading, canoeing, sailing, and hiking. In addition to spending time with my wife and two adult daughters, I enjoy walking my four-year-old Bernedoodle. I'm a proud member of Oakville's Canadian Coast Guard Auxillary unit TOWARF.
