My name’s Laura Gardner and I’ve just started my masters in European, Russian and Eurasian Studies. I’m originally from the UK and have been in Canada for almost 6 years now. I’ve been working as an ESL/EFL teacher for the last 14 years, which has taken me across Europe, to Russia, and even to the North of Canada. I’m trying to change careers, so I’m coming back into full time education after a long gap, so please be gentle with me! I’m looking forward to getting to know you all in the coming weeks.
