The majority of Jasyn’s professional teaching career has been in Vancouver, but has included stops in Korea, China, and most notably in Japan, where he was involved with the successful development and implementation of an English education pilot program for the Toyonaka City School Board.
Before coming to KEY, he founded and operated his own language school in Coquitlam for international students. For 20 years, being able to assist and watch students from elementary age to high school achieve and grow as individuals was his most rewarding experience.
KEY’s core values align with his views on education, including the importance of critical thinking, challenging students to perform to their best, and that educational style and content should be tailored to an individual. In academics, an educator needs to consider what attributes make our students stand out, including their social awareness, extracurriculars, sports, and the arts.
He is a strong believer that the foundations that are developed from a young age, such as working hard and learning to cooperate with others, are the keys to success.
