Dana Bjornson

Mrs. Bjornson was a Grade 8 Challenge student at Esquimalt High School in 1985 on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen Peoples. Studies at the University of British Columbia, Royal Roads Military College, and the University of Victoria led her to a degree in Physics and Mathematics and her teaching certification. In 2018, Mrs. Bjornson completed her Master of Educational Technology degree through UBC. With twenty years of teaching experience behind her, this degree has shifted her practice immensely. Blending “tried and true” traditional pedagogy with technology-enhanced activities provide her students opportunities to personalize their learning while learning mathematics and physics. Mrs. Bjornson also teaches Esquimalt’s Scholarship 12 class and she is the main contributor to the school’s Future Opportunities Google Classroom. She encourages all students to dive deeply into opportunities that go beyond the walls of their timetabled classes. It is through these experiences that one’s future life course can be revealed!
