Ana Vakiloroayaei

Sessional Instructor
Faculty of Science

Ana has been an incredibly valuable asset to the Introductory Biology course this semester. Not only did she co-teach the course with me, she also coordinated the labs for the course (close to 400 students!), and did an outstanding job in both roles. She navigated challenges calmly and fairly and I knew I could count on her to stay on top of everything. On several instances, Ana took the time to update quizzes for both of our lecture sections before I had a chance to get to them. This was a tremendous time saver and I very much appreciated it. Ana is definitely a team player. She is positive, very dedicated to our students and terrific moral support as well. She was always available for brainstorming ideas and open to trying new teaching strategies. It has been an absolute pleasure to co-teach with her. Thank you Ana, you consistently make my day and keep me smiling!

Kyle Warner

Web Developer
Communications and Marketing

Kyle has been such a fantastic person to learn from and collaborate with. He is extremely hard-working, knowledgeable and puts student success as a top priority. Kyle has gone above and beyond in helping us design, build and set up a phenomenal orientation website. Without the help of Kyle, the information new students needed and the activities faculty and staff planned would have gone in vain.

This was not all, as the campus slowly re-opened its doors to students, staff and Faculty. We needed a one-stop place where students could get the information they required about Academic Advising Services. As we know, providing vital and timely information is essential. Within seconds of reaching out for help, Kyle was able to update the Academic advising website with ease. Kyle, thank you so much for all of your hard work, dedication towards the student experience and student success. Thank you for all of your help; everyone appreciates everything you do.
