Giovanni received an Honours Bachelor of Arts in political science and history from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Education from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). He holds qualifications in junior and intermediate divisions, along with qualifications in teaching English as a Second Language. For the past two years, Giovanni was a homeroom teacher at a Canadian, international school overseas but he is back home and ready to begin a new chapter at RRLS. Prior to teaching, Giovanni spent many years working with children as a recreational leader for the City of Toronto.
When he is not at RRLS, Gio – as he is more commonly referred to – enjoys playing tennis, travelling, cooking, and contemplating life in independent cafés. He does not have Netflix, and he makes soap from scratch (some might say he’s from a different century).
“Gio is a great teacher, but what makes him really special is that he is just the right amount of serious and funny!”
