TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Unlike many teachers, I do not tend to have a 'favourite' grade to teach. While many of my ideas seem to be more Junior appropriate, I have taught all grades from Kindergarten through to Grade 6. My broad range of experiences has allowed me to see the fun that all grades can offer, as well as the continuum that most students follow on the path of learning.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that students learn best when they are given opportunities to explore ideas through hands-on exploration, question the ideas they are taught, are challenged to think critically, and have lots of time to practice new skills. I believe students need to direct their own learning in combination with teacher-directed learning, and while some ideas are best acquired through inquiry, others must be directly taught and practiced repeatedly.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I won the Alterna Savings Golden Apple Award in my first year of teaching for my commitment to my students and the learning community.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After graduating high school, I completed a 4 year B.Sc. degree with a focus in Foods and Nutrition. I then went on to Teacher's College where I studied Primary/Junior education and received my B.Ed. I have since completed 8 Additional Qualification courses, including my Primary/Junior Math Specialist and Intermediate Math qualifications.

I've been a teacher at heart my whole life! Even while I was a student, I had a 'school' set up in my basement where any stuffed animal, sibling, cousin, pet, etc. that was willing (or summoned) to let me teach them were my students. My mind thinks teaching no matter where I am, what I'm doing, who I'm with, or what time of year it is. Although I don't have any teachers in my family, I do believe I was given the 'teacher gene'. I love to watch students develop into better versions of themselves and celebrating their successes with them makes me beyond happy. Teaching is not a job for me - it is my passion, my lifestyle, and my calling!
