Once an ESL teacher and now a volunteer tutor at Whitehorse Correctional Centre, Louise enjoys supporting those who are willing to work hard at making positive changes in their lives.
Al Morrison, Director
Al Morrison worked 25 years in the Civil Service and retired in April of 2012. When he was taking Computer Studies I was asked to teach Computer courses as part of my practicum and I found teaching to be very interesting. How do people learn, perceive and understand were questions that I had never considered so I found the learning process very interesting. I followed up on the learning process and researched it. Teaching at Yukon Learn is unique, life skills are being taught. The students want to learn and the instructors want to teach and this make the learning experience beneficial to both.
