Jolanta Caputa

Jolanta has a M.A. in English from Poland and a TESL Diploma from Vancouver Community College. She taught EFL in Poland for nine years and has been teaching ESL at CNC since 1991. Jolanta moved to Canada with her husband and two children in 1988. In her free time, she likes to read, listen to music, and watch movies. She also enjoys skiing, getting exercise, and learning new things. What Jolanta loves most about teaching ESL are the students and what they bring—their wealth of information, sense of humor, and their enthusiasm to learn English.

Suzanne LeFebvre

Suzanne has a B.A. in Sociology and Psychology from the University of Alberta and a CELTA Certificate from Cambridge University. She has been teaching for about 20 years. She grew up in a small French northern community in Alberta, but she has lived in Prince George for over thirty years. In her spare time, Suzanne enjoys spending time with her family at the cabin, reading, and playing word games, especially ‘Scrabble. She is active in her church and in the French Canadian Club. Suzanne taught French for many years and found it enjoyable, but finds teaching ESL more rewarding since students live in an English environment and progress rapidly. She also finds the camaraderie that exists amongst the staff in the ESL department hard to beat.
