Kelly Dever

Technology Coach

About me.

I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. I was fortunate to enjoy a fulfilling career in the public education system. Throughout those years I took advantage of opportunities to improve my knowledge and skills in order to improve the learning experience I created for and with my students. Technology has become an integral part of education. What attracted me to work for LEARNstyle was their recognition that, with relationship-building, technology will have a greater impact on student success.

My Hero

My father is my hero. He provided a wonderful example of how being a lifelong learner could enhance one’s life. He taught me that learning was a continuous process and did not happen without some failure.

My Passion

My passion is acquiring skills and knowledge that will support continuous growth and improvement. When possible, I like sharing what I have learned with others to support their journey to be their best version of themselves. One of the greatest compliments I had during my years as a teacher was from a student who at the end of the semester said, “Thanks for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself. I’ve accomplished things I never thought I could”

Favourite Food

My favourite food is chocolate.

Your Happy Place

My happy place is outdoors.

Favourite Animals

My favourite animals are dolphins.

Growing Up

I was involved in a wide variety of activities outside of school: dancing, piano lessons, swimming and skiing.  Both of my parents were teachers and were involved with running extra-curricular activities so our home life from the moment we awoke until bedtime was very scheduled. I don’t know whether it is nature or nurture but I continue to be organized.

Graduation

I graduated from McMaster University with a Bachelor of Health and Physical Education degree. Like many individuals who move away from home to complete their post-secondary education, I learned a lot about who I was.

Exploring History

Regular participation in physical activity has been part of my life since elementary. When I was in school my creative side was nourished by dancing and music. As an adult, I developed an interest in travel and gardening. There is nothing like exiting a plane and embarking on a journey of discovery.

More about me.

I have been fortunate to travel to a variety of places. Each of these places has a rich political and artistic history. These ruins gave me chills to stand on the site of a settlement that was established 7000BC.
