ABOUT THE TEACHER
My name is Dhana Matthews and I have been teaching for 20 years. I live in the greater Vancouver area (Delta) and love teaching the wide variety of students who come through my classroom every year. I love the energy students bring to the education system and I learn more every year as I adapt to the unique needs of learners. In my free time I love spending time with my son in his many activities and enjoy our work with rescue animals.
