PEOPLE OF COLUMBIA
Denice Garell

Ms. Denice Garell-Teti
Head of Junior Middle School
B.A, B.Ed & M.Ed

Having taught in Malaysia and Japan, Ms.Garell-Teti was inspired to teach international students. Prior to being appointed as Head of the Junior Middle School, she served as English Department Head and also taught a variety of Arts and Language courses. She obtained her undergraduate degrees in Arts and Education from McMaster and Queen’s Universities respectively. She further completed her Master’s in Education at the University of Toronto.

“The Junior-Middle School provides a supportive learning environment that is uniquely suited to the needs of grade 7 and 8 students. Our highly qualified staff have a passion for teaching this exciting and energetic age group. Our staff interact with the young students both inside the classroom and outside through a variety of structured and stimulating programs after-school and on weekends”. I have worked with and witnessed the personal growth of these young students. I am confident of the future success they will experience as a result of their time studying at Columbia”.
