I have been teaching grades k-6 in the Toronto District School Board for the past five years. I have worked abroad (Taiwan and Turkey) as an English language teacher. My passion for teaching children is rooted in the fifteen years I spent as a private music teacher.
My teaching is based upon 3 main principles: -Accurate and ongoing assessment -Multi-modal instructional strategies -Focus on integration of different subject areas Above all, I believe in bringing loads of energy and fun into the classroom.
