Kyle Kirkwood of the South Hill Education Centre in Vancouver is not only an educator, but also an advocate and mentor. He quickly develops a rapport and mutual respect with his adult students, many of whom are taking English as a second language. His classroom is friendly and interesting, and his lessons include many hands-on activities. Mr. Kirkwood encourages his students to learn from everything around them, pointing out free sources of information, such as libraries, parks and government agencies. Despite what their previous experience of school may have been or the language barrier, the students do well. Several have achieved perfect scores on provincial exams; others have earned scholarships and entered university programs all over the world.
