Daniel Levy, co-creator, writer and star of the highly popular CBC comedy Schitt’s Creek was featured in the December 2016 issue of Professionally Speaking, the journal of the Ontario College of Teachers. In the Remarkable Teacher segment, he paid tribute to Anne Carrier, Head of English at NTCI from 1998 to her retirement in 2005, and the pivitol role she played in helping him “find his voice.”
Levy recalled, “High school was a tricky time… I knew I wanted to write, to create, to have my voice heard but I had no idea how to do it.” But being in Anne Carrier’s class in 2001 was perfect timing: “She came along at just the right moment.” Dan specifically praised Anne for her emphasis on subtext and the “challenge of reading between the lines… She inspired me to think differently and continue to write.”
Kudos to Dan on his successful career and for recognizing
the major role Anne Carrier played in his journey to success.
