Instructor Biography

Helen Dakin, Learning & Development (L&D)

Hi. I hold a 4 year Bachelor of Mathematics degree from the University of Waterloo and a B Ed (Honours) from the University of Western Ontario. While I have been trained as a high school mathematics educator, I have had the pleasure of teaching mathematics at the post secondary level for four community colleges in southern Ontario. When I am not teaching, I like to fool around with my camera, muck about in my garden, read a good book and sail around in my boat. Not necessarily in that order.
