Devon Jones doesn’t see himself as just an educator — he’s also a life coach.
Working with some of Toronto’s racialized and marginalized students at Brookview Middle School, in the Jane and Finch area, Jones strives to show his students “how to make smart choices, how to be civically engaged (and) how to be part of the larger social fabric.”
That’s because he’s been there too.
