Gurlin Kaur Brar

Elementary School Teacher

Gurlin Kaur comes from a family of teachers and has always been passionate about teaching. Notably, she was voted most likely to become a teacher by her Grade 12 graduating class and has actively pursued this passion since. Before attending teacher’s college, Gurlin Kaur led Experience Sikhi’s Vidhia Academy initiative – a summer program dedicated to teaching students math, English, and the values of Sikhi. After obtaining her Bachelor of Education degree from York University, she went on to teach at the Gobind Sarvar Private School in Brampton. Currently, she is a teacher at Kingswood Drive Public School, where she also sits on the Engaged Math Committee, Technology Committee, and the Celebrations of Learning Committee. Accordingly, Gurlin Kaur is a resource for students thinking of teaching as a career and recent graduates navigating their way through the Peel Board of Education’s hiring process.  

Outside of her classroom, Gurlin Kaur is also a student. She is learning how to read and write Hindi, is taking weekly ice-skating lessons, has taken up coding, and has obtained a black belt in karate. Gurlin Kaur also volunteers for Experience Sikhi and works with its event planning and fundraising teams to bring the charity’s ideas to life. In the past, she served as President of the Waterloo Sikh Students Association.
