Cecile Popp

Educator, Writer, Mother of three, Canadian Expat. Currently on a gap year in southern Turkey.

Cecile Popp is a Canadian teacher and writer. A fourth generation expat, it is perhaps not surprising that she is an ardent believer in personal growth and that life is a journey. Every decade or so, she likes to shake things up, forcing herself out of her comfort zone. For ten years she taught English Language Arts at some of Turkey’s most elite private high schools. Most recently she decided to take a professional gap year and devote herself full time to writing. She currently lives with her husband, their three young boys and their dog in southern Turkey.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
