Meet the Teachers
Katie Doering, Principal
Bachelor of Education, Master of Arts, Special Education Specialist
Katie is from Burlington, Ont. and has been teaching at RMHC Toronto School since it opened in 2004. Her favourite part of teaching here is that, unlike in a more traditional school, Katie can teach up to eight grades at the same time. She is a huge fan of books, so Language is an exciting subject for her to teach. From picture books like Harold and the Purple Crayon and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, to mystery stories like Nancy Drew and young adult novels like The Hunger Games, Katie loves discovering and exploring books with students. Outside of school, Katie plays the French horn in a band, enjoys taking dance classes and is an avid moviegoer. More than anything, she loves exploring Toronto’s attractions with her family.
Bachelor of Education, Post graduate diploma in Child Life Studies
Danielle is from Burlington, Ont. and has been teaching at RMHC Toronto School since 2010. She loves teaching here because she gets to meet students and families from so many different places. She also finds it very satisfying because she gets to connect closely with students and watch them grow academically, socially and emotionally in a short period of time. Danielle’s favourite part of her day at RMHC Toronto School is the morning calendar activities because students have a chance to discuss how they’re feeling, which is important during such a difficult time in their lives. Outside of school, Danielle is a competitive cheerleader. She enjoys hanging out with her cat, visiting friends and family and trying new restaurants.
Bachelor of Education
Ryan is from Port Colborne, Ont. and began teaching at RMHC Toronto School in 2016. Previously he spent two years teaching in Northern Manitoba and two years in England. His favourite aspect of teaching at RMHC Toronto is the cooperative, family-like atmosphere in the classroom, where students and teachers work much more closely in their learning. Ryan loves to be active by playing sports (particularly tennis), going for runs and exercising at the gym, so it comes as no surprise that his favourite subject to teach is physical education. Outside of school, Ryan likes to spend his free time with his friends and family, traveling abroad and participating in a variety of Toronto sporting leagues.
