I am absolutely thrilled to be starting my second year at PTC joining the math team!  Math is my passion and I look forward to building confidence and skills with our math learners! I am an energetic, passionate teacher of 26 years in the areas of math and science. I look forward to engaging my students in deeper learning to help them gain skills for their future and to watch and support them as they grow throughout their education journey. In my spare time I enjoy playing ringette at the provincial level and watching various sports and spending time with my family. I am looking very forward to another amazing year at PTC!

Babak Yousefi
Educational Assistant

Hi everyone! My name is Babak Yousefi, a member of the PTC EA staff. I am basically Kurdish from Kurdistan and am so excited, as a newcomer, to be working at a newly constructed high-tech school with all these nice staff. This year, 2024, is my second year of being in Canada and I am really enjoying my work while completing my Master of Education at the University of Manitoba. It has been almost 9 months working as an EA for me, first at FRC and now at PTC, during which I have had my greatest times.

I am sure your children will greatly enjoy studying in a friendly space like this and can fulfill their dreams much easier.
