Is there a need for English as a Second Language teachers in Montreal/Quebec? Before I make the leap to get jobs teaching French Immersion, my husband and I thought it would be great to live in Quebec for a year, to boost the language skills (my French is fluent, but not perfect).


Is there work in both the private schools and public? My degrees are in German and History (with a Master's in education), so I have no official degree in English. But, as a native speaker, who has taught ESL, I would like to think I'd be a good candidate. Does anyone know?


Thank you!

Thanks to Agnes for the link. I'm a Social Science teacher looking for collaboration opportunities with other classrooms - especially for the "Philosophy for Teens" class (grade 10&11 students). I am interested in connecting with other teachers/students who enjoy the philosophical pursuits and would like to exchange ideas about how we could encourage students in their philosophical questioning. I blog at

Hi - I'm from, a resource for Canadian Teachers. It's really great to find this group. Looking forward to learning from you and also providing some tools and resources.

Hi there, I'm teaching educational technology at the University of Victoria and Thompson Rivers University. I work as an instructional designer at UVic as my day job.

I hope to get my students into the community and resources that Classroom 2.0 has to offer.

Hi Everyone. I'm in Calgary - working as a faculty development officer at Bow Valley College. Love to see examples of post-secondary applications for NING and other Web 2.0 technologies such as wikis, etc. I'm enrolled right now in the PBWorks summer camp and learning lots about possibilities with wikis. Any examples from post-secondary that could be shared with instructors to stimulate ideas and dream about the possibilities?
