Carlo started his path in teaching in 2011, working with newcomers and refugees in libraries and community centres. After realizing he wants to be an educator, he decided to change his career from healthcare to education and finished a degree in Linguistics at the University of Toronto. He has worked in both public and private sectors; from literacy assessment in the school board, language variationist research in university, ESL/EAP teaching in private schools and management in a literacy organization. Currently, he is taking OISE’s LLE program for his M.Ed. He is particularly interested in student and internationally educated teacher’s identity and its relationship with agency and investment in class.
