Facilitating equitable access to education is at the core of Ainsworth Morgan’s approach to teaching.

For the past 9 years Ainsworth has worked for the Toronto District School Board as a grade 7/8 teacher at Nelson Mandela Park Public School, in Regent Park. He is currently on secondment from the Toronto District School Board, working as the Coordinator of Tutoring for The Pathways to Education Program-Regent Park. Ainsworth Morgan obtained his Bsc.
