Keagan Stoyles

Keagan Stoyles is in the final year of her B.Ed from Queen’s University, where she is pursuing Intermediate/Senior qualifications in English and History, with a concentration in social justice. Her goal as an educator is to teach with “radical empathy” so that every student leaves the classroom feeling inspired and empowered, their identity affirmed and celebrated! Ultimately, Keagan hopes to push students to be agents of change by modeling equitable and socially just practices in her classroom, and by continuing to build her educator toolkit through EDI-focused professional learning opportunities.
