I am an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia. Realizing the importance of a strength-based approach, I am involved in creating youth-friendly educational and mental health resources. My research explores the relationships among cyber-aggression, resiliency, academic achievement, and wellness. My research and teaching not only utilizes digital technology, but approaches those digital tools from Indigenous perspectives.Dr. Sam will fill teaching gaps across two programs in the faculty: HDLC and NITEP.
