TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Alex has over seventeen years teaching in grade four, five, and six classrooms, all in the public education system of Ontario. Catherine has taught in the primary grades for all of her career. She is Reading Recovery trained and is passionate about early literacy.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe that a good classroom is safe, and that all students should feel that they play a role in the learning process. Students are encouraged to take risks, and the curriculum should be delivered so that all students can access it at their own level. A constant emphasis on learning skill development in conjunction with academic growth produces learners who are not only scholarly but worldly as well.
