I have taught upper intermediate for 6 years in BC public schools. I believe in equity in education and enjoy working with varied student populations. I feel school and classroom community are vital in making students feel connected and safe in order for them to learn.
My teaching style is eclectic. I love trying new things and challenging my students to be critical thinkers from day one. I'm working on bringing inquiry learning and project based learning tasks into my classroom.

I live in Surrey, BC (about 25 minutes outside of Vancouver) I enjoy playing hockey and hitting the gym. I have a great dog who is a valued member of my classroom community! I post things in my TPT store that I use in my own classroom. My students are immigrants, refugees, many come from low income families. They are amazing and continually rise to the expectations i set. I work full time as a public school teacher. I try to post to my instagram @classroom.Om frequently, and I am trying to earn enough to justify buying a Font Book! I love TPT there are so many awesome people here!
