Meet the Instructor!
- Beverley Galandzy started working at the ROM over 17 years ago and has never looked back. She began as a Summer Club instructor and has since taken on a wide variety of roles teaching learners of all ages from kindergarten to adults in a variety of settings. Over the years Beverley has developed her teaching repertoire to include many disciplines, but she always add a little TEK and a little environmental awareness into the mix. As well as being a teacher in the Learning department, she is also an instructor for ROMKids programs, New to Canada Youth Club, and ROM Moms. Working closely with management teams and curators, she develops object-based learning opportunities for students of all ages. Beverley believes that part of being an educator is being a life-long learner. She love challenging herself to learn new things, from every detail of a new exhibit, to new discoveries in the world of science and more.
