P3 #101 Greg Sykes

By Noa Daniel

Passionate educators connect weekly to address questions, explore perspectives and learn from each other.

Greg Sykes is a curious and rather eclectic teacher candidate currently attending Western University. He has a passion for music composition/performance, working through creative projects, and engaging in all things related to the lifelong pursuit of learning. Formally, Greg has managed to achieve both a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Piano and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at St. Francis Xavier University, but intends on continuing his education through informal, yet intentional, self-directed learning upon graduating from Western. Greg has also had the opportunity of spending the last four summers playing piano in the beautiful town of Dawson City, Yukon, and he intends on returning for one last hurrah this upcoming season.

Greg has been interning at OEMConnect through Digital Human Library. He has spent his time recording the Mentors about why they volunteer to support Mentees, and why they believe mentorship is a source of professional learning. Greg was recently on the live broadcast of OnEdMentors during voicEd Radio’s 3rd Anniversary Radiothon:
