    Tamwood 101: Teachers

    Katrina Heron

    Katrina has been living in Whistler since October 2005. She is British from the North East of England, near Newcastle and has worked and traveled in various different countries around the world.

    She has worked in ESL schools in New Zealand, England and Japan before arriving at Tamwood, Whistler. She has also spent a lot of winter seasons in the Valais, Switzerland enjoying the life in the snow & sun.

    She finds Whistler a great base to do activities in both summer and winter and especially enjoys the trials around Lost Lake for biking and cross-country skiing. In her opinion Whistler Mountain is great for snowboarding and Blackcomb better for skiing, and for that après drink, either Black’s patio or the Crystal Lounge for chicken wings.
