TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Alex has over seventeen years teaching in grade four, five, and six classrooms, all in the public education system of Ontario. He is currently a grade six homeroom teacher, but has teaching experience from Kindergarten to grade 11, including French. Alex is also involved in many aspects of the provincial standardized assessment administered by EQAO, including rubric development, supervision of scoring activities, and the writing of the junior language assessment itself. Catherine has taught pre-school to grade 2 for 18 years. 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.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Alex is a Tribes certified teacher, and was nominated for Educator of the Year in Ontario.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Alex has a bachelor of arts degree from University of Toronto, and a Bachelor's of Education degree from Ontario Institute for the Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Alex and Catherine enjoy traveling and spending time with family.
