TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my teaching career almost 35 years ago teaching elementary music classes in both English and French. After doing this for a few years I began teaching in my own primary classroom. I have taught Grades 1, 2, and 3. I am retired and I volunteer at my last school doing reading and math groups. I still teach ukulele as an extra-curricular activity.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Positive self-esteem is very important to me and I spent a lot of time working with my students to help them develop a love of themselves and their talents that they can share with others. Many of our activities dealt with creating powerful, positive, confident, and caring people. I enjoyed using technology in the classroom. Many activities incorporated computers, document cameras, and the projector. I used interactive whiteboards as well. I enjoy creating different projects for students to do that provide them with an opportunity to show their learning in a variety of ways. These projects have been highly successful and continue to be a great way to involve the families in the learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was humbled when told by former administrators that I was going to be missed when retiring. They had heard that I was doing amazing things in my classroom and that I always gave 110% to my students. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with so many master educators and learn from them.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria. I began teaching with a standard certificate in 1980 and then took classes every summer until I completed my professional certificate. As I incorporated my experience from teaching, I made several changes to the route I was going and I feel that this on-going learning helped me to become a better teacher.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I enjoyed geocaching before injuring my knees. My caching name is Diamond Mom and this name has followed me into other areas. I am a co-director for Pacifica Ukes which is an honor ukulele organization in the Campbell River school district. I also assist my husband with two adult groups in the area. I would love to have you stop by my blog and my Facebook page to see what has been happening in my world.
