I have been teaching for seven years and have been designing integrated curriculum for six.
I believe that every child is able to succeed and that the curriculum needs to be tailored to the child, playing on their interests and strengths, putting their learning in contexts that matter.
Yet to be added
I completed my Bachelor of Arts at Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada) and did my Post-Graduate Certificate in Education at Bangor University (Wales).
I have taught in a small village school in Canada as well as a three-form entry private British school in the Middle East. I'm presently teaching at a small school in Durham, North Carolina.
