When our speech teacher left in our school, I had the push I needed to obtain a secondary education Communication license. Working closely with the UWO Communication professors and the Add-On program staff, I completed my Add-On license work in only two years. The program was flexible, realistic for a full-time teacher to complete, and offered an opportunity for reflection of my instructional practice. I'm so grateful for the experience and to everyone at UWO who supported me!
