Allan Hope

I have been teaching high school mathematics for 12 years, and my passion for it continues to grow. I have also taught summer school and diploma preparation courses. Let's rock and roll in the math world!

I also love playing hockey, water skiing, track and field, basketball, and fitness. I hope that I can shine a new light on math for you.


Derrick Toporowski

I have been a senior high science teacher for 33 years. During that time I have taught in traditional classrooms, online synchronous courses, and blended classrooms. I have been a marker and item writer for the Chemistry 30 and Physics 30 Provincial Diploma Exams. When I am not teaching, I enjoy cross-country and downhill skiing. My summers are spent gardening, golfing, and hiking in the Rockies.

If you are having trouble with a science concept, I am ready to help.
