Lizanne Foster, a teacher who works with teens from diverse backgrounds in Surrey, BC, became a teacher by accident in South Africa during the Apartheid era. She describes teaching teens as an experience of constantly learning from their courage, creativity and genius. She integrates the Haven’s Communication Model into her teaching practice, introducing it within the first weeks of each semester.
