photo of Jennifer MitscheI began my teaching career at Toronto French School, before moving to New York to teach at the Lycee Francais.  I have been teaching English at George Brown College for the past 9 years.  After being diagnosed with cancer in 2009, I started learning about food, and I started a blog called Eating Through Cancer.  I also began engaging my students in critical thinking exercises around food and discovered that the nutritional deficit in our educational system has left many students unprepared to take care of their health.  I have returned to university to pursue a Masters degree and find ways to extend this problematic and sometimes controversial discussion about food.
