Teacher Mr. Matt Bustin
My name is Matt Bustin. I¡¯ve been an English, social studies, and ELL teacher in Richmond, BC for the past six years. Prior to qualifying as a teacher, I completed an undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia, majoring in history and philosophy. I¡¯ve also dabbled in French, Spanish, Greek, and Latin, so I know a little about the challenges of language learning.
In addition to the humanities and languages, I am passionate about travelling. In fact, it was my experiences exploring and teaching ELL in Thailand, Indonesia, and England that initially peaked my interest in completing a Bachelor of Education degree. I cherish the?many?opportunities I have had?to teach and learn from?students?around the world.
I am looking forward to my first summer at PRESL, exploring the rugged beauty of Canada¡¯s west coast with students while engaging them in an exciting English program.
I eagerly await meeting you all. See you this summer!
