It t​ruly is a privilege to be the Principal of the Seven Oaks Met School. I believe the ​Met's 3R's, "relationships, relevance, and rigor," are an ideal platform for teaching and learning to spring forth from.  The innovative critical thinking skills we instil in the next generation are the ones needed to make the world a more equitable, sustainable, and democratic place.  Read more...

I consider myself very fortunate to be an advisor at Seven Oaks Met School. I've been teaching at Seven Oaks Met the last 7 ½ years and I am currently working towards graduation with my second advisory. It is by far and away my favorite teaching experience. I love getting the chance to work with students over a four-year period. Seeing students grow through high school is incredibly rewarding.

I love, love, love teaching here at the Met school! I am extremely passionate about education in general, but I have a particular passion for student-led, inquiry and project-based learning. I thrive in a school like Met, where students and staff alike collaborate to achieve the best possible opportunities for learning. My goal as an educator is to create open-minded, critical thinkers who see themselves as global citizens and lifelong learners. I strive to establish a classroom of active learners who think in the long term.  read more....

I​ am so excited to work with the students and adviser's at the Seven Oaks Met School. The privilege of teaching here is one that I am supremely honoured to have and I aim to make my advisory a great place to be. I feel that students learn best when they can lay hands on and experience what they are learning and intend to bring that to every lesson we have. I have had a lifelong love for science, math, comic books and am generally an all-around nerd. read more....

​Facing the ‘real world’ after high school can be very intimidating and overwhelming for students, at least it was for me! Upon my high school graduation I thought pursuing a Bachelor of Science at the University of Manitoba would end up confirming my desires of entering a profession in healthcare, but as it turned out I became very passionate about microbiology and learning about all of the microbes that are within us and that surround us.  read more ...

​I've always known my passion in life was with technology.  I followed that passion through high school and into university, attaining my Bachelor of Science in computer Science from the University of Winnipeg.  It wasn't until I was in the working world that I discovered that while technology was my passion, it was educating that was my calling!  read more ....

LTI Coordinator
Maribeth Tabanera.jpg 

My name is Maribeth Tabanera and I am the Learning Through Internship Coordinator (LTIC) at Seven Oaks Met School and Maples Met School. I was born and raised in the North End of Winnipeg by two wonderful parents who immigrated from the Philippines. My father was a jack-of-all-trades, but mostly a pressman. My mother was studying Teacher Education, but gave it up to help her parents and move to Canada with her husband. I grew up watching my parents work very hard to provide for our family. This inspired me to achieve my goals and make them proud. Read more…
