Google Certified Educator: Level 1 Google for Education
I believe that learning happens best when students are involved in constructing knowledge and meaning from their experiences in student-centred constructivist activities and lessons. As a teacher, it is my job to facilitate these learning experiences using a variety of strategies that takes into account the various needs and learning styles of all students so that they are able to find success in the classroom and elsewhere. I aim to provide students with a structured learning environment, bring a positive attitude and open mind to the classroom each day and to hold my students - and myself to high, but attainable expectations. Classrooms should be a place where students are able to take risks, develop and identify their passions and interests, and express their ideas in a safe, supportive, and engaging environment that fosters growth mindsets and critical thinking.

My desire to work in the field of education was sparked many summers ago when I began working at an overnight summer camp in upstate New York, a place I am still fortunate enough to spend every summer at. While working at camp I learned how rewarding working with children can be, and find working in a classroom to be equally rewarding.
