Teaching is my second career. I started as a social worker and when I was pregnant with my first son, decided to go back to school and finish my teaching certification (that I had previously started 7 years prior). It was the best decision I ever made! I have since taught Resource, Grade 5/6, Grade 2, and now Grade 1/2. I love teaching and the only thing I regret is that it took me so long to get to the profession that I LOVE!
I use differentiated instruction in my classroom. I am a firm believer and lover of all things centres and guided. I have recently implemented guided math and math centres into my classroom and so far, the results have been amazing. The students are getting so much more out of our lessons.
