I have been teaching for 12 years, after graduating from Nipissing University. I have mostly taught split-grades for most of my teaching.
Community, Differentiation, combination of whole-group, centers, small-group, play-based fun!
In my 13th year of teacher, starting as a supply, then a part-time SERT (Special Ed.) working in Upper Elementary students, before being placed in my own class. Majority of my teaching has been in split grades - grade 2/3 and grade 5/6 - and began my first year in FDK (Full-Day Kindergarten) last year, where I remain this year!
I have begun to create my own clipart and have made personalized "avatars-of-sorts" for many of my teacher friends. Teaching is my passion and the second best thing after motherhood!
