Riada began teaching at a tender age in a one-room school house in bonnie Scotland. Older pupils had to teach the pupils at the level below them for part of the school day. She never looked back. She completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Alberta, followed by her teaching certification in Hull, England. As well as homeschooling her own children, she spent most of her career teaching English at a high school in Ottawa. Riada is passionate about all of her students and finds there’s nothing quite as rewarding as watching people develop their potential.
