I spent three years teaching ESL in East Asia and a year teaching Senior Kindergarten. I've spent my whole life being curious :-)
To put it simply, I want my students to be the best they can be, and I try to find different ways to foster that. How? Well, through humour, seriousness, love, smiles, hugs, listening. By being my students' cheerleader, firm mother, big sister, silly friend, and ultimately their advocate.
Hugs, cards, and art from my students!
I received my Honours B.A. with a Specialist in Philosophy and Minor in Italian. I then went on to do my B.Ed., specializing in Primary/Junior Education. Oh, and I still continue to learn everyday.
I love puns, horribly great jokes, and creating things! I also love philosophy and wondering about life and the world. I know some people say they love sunsets and long walks along the beach, but seriously, I do!
