Hi, my name is Mr. Iwanyshyn and I am from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Secondary Education as well as a Bachelor of Science degree. My degrees focused on Physical Sciences and Psychology. I am looking forward to creating strong relationships with students, peers and parents here at CIS.
Back home I worked as a fitness instructor for adults and ran a children’s fitness program geared for kids aged 6-13. Witnessing students conquer obstacles and achieve feats they never thought possible is what inspired me to become a teacher. I strive to develop students into resilient, driven and successful individuals. I believe a successful classroom has a strong sense of community and is something I aim to establish during my time here.
Being a young teacher allows me to develop concrete connections with students, hopefully impacting their lives on an educational and personal level. Teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving ability are skills that I seek to develop in my students. I believe these are imperative skills that extend beyond the classroom. I enjoy seeing others succeed and am ecstatic to be part of the CIS team.
