Dante Priam's Biography

My name is Dante Priam. I was born in Mississauga, Ontario but have spent almost all my life in Brampton. Throughout my years at both elementary and high school in Brampton, I was fortunate to receive several awards for compassion, honesty, integrity and empathy.

 

From the age of 7, I participated in competitive soccer, and at the request of my coach, had the opportunity to assist him in coaching younger players. This is when I realized that I enjoyed mentoring younger children, helping them to be the best they can be while helping them with their self-esteem and confidence. This is also what is making me consider a career in teaching as I enjoy any opportunity to work with children. 

“When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments — tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become.”
