HOK #25: Kerry Gogush Cule


Meet Kerry Gogush Cule.

“I’ve lived in Kitchissippi for 20 years, after growing up and living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I love that this area is like a little village, a close-knit community, and almost like an extended family. I came here for a job after I finished my engineering degree. After I had both of my kids, I went back to school. Ever since I was a little one I wanted to teach. It blends my love of science and math. Now I teach high school science. I really love science and I try to pass that along to my students. My favourite part of teaching is when the light bulb goes off and they have an ‘ah ha’ moment. When it all clicks, I get really excited. I teach at an online high school, so I work from home, and I rarely get to meet my students face to face. The cons are it is sometimes difficult to connect with students without the subtle face-to-face cues. The pros are that I don’t have to commute anywhere, and if I’m having a lousy day, I can teach in my pyjamas.” Collected by Ellen Bond

Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our growing collection of humans right here.
