TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over forty years. My experience as a teacher includes elementary school, junior high, ESL in China and Taiwan to all ages (including two-year-olds!)ESL to Adults and Adult Literacy. I have also filled the posts of Modern Languages Coordinator for seven years, an administrator, curriculum writing, computer and curriculum resource teacher. I have also done designing and preparing teaching materials od all kinds, and was a product presenter and teacher trainer for Pearson Ed in Asia. I have a varied background of experience as you can see. While in China, I was involved in writing curriculum, teacher training and preparing teaching materials for use with the SmartBoard. As you might imagine, I have learned "what works", both through research and "procedural knowledge". My personal goal for student success is this: "100% of the students 100% engaged, 100% of the time". That is my responsibility.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe there is a time for all styles of teaching. I mostly favor a "hands on" approach, especially for young children, but I combine all styles as needed. I am especially interested in Gardner's "Multiple Intelligences" theory of learning and try to incorporate that notion whenever I am planning lessons, materials and training sessions. My watchword is, "no one likes to be bored!" and my goal is "100% of students 100% engaged, 100% of the time." Learning should be fun, but well-planned and implemented. I am passionate about teaching through literature. I believe that most of life's important lessons can be learned this way. Yes...even for math and science.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have co-authored two supplementary French readers to accompany the EFSL (French as a second language) series, Aventures. (Copp-Clark Longman)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor of Education, majoring in Language Arts and Library and a Master of Education in Curriculum Studies from the University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada.
