I am a pre-service teacher with a HUGE passion for active learning. Currently, I am a Master of Teaching student at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (University of Toronto). During my undergraduate career studying Child Studies I have completed 2 placements in preschool and a grade 4 classroom, while developing IEP's. During my graduate studies thus far, I have completed a placement in a grade 2/3 split classroom. In terms of employment, I have worked as a preschool educator, an academic mentor, and a private ESL tutor. By summer 2019, I will be recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for a Certificate of Qualification and Registration, certifying me to teach in Ontario schools.
My teaching style follows the constructivist approach. I attempt to make the classroom as lively and active as possible to stimulate higher order thinking and maximize learning by allowing students to make connections with past experiences. I also value the flipped classroom model, which focuses on inverting the traditional classroom by establishing the classroom as the environment of active and collaborative learning and the home as the environment of passive, lecture-based learning.

As I am from Montreal, Quebec, I attended Cegep after high school in 2012 where I studied Social Studies for 2 years. Following Cegep, I went on to do my Undergraduate degree in 2014 at Concordia University where my passion for children and teaching began as I earned my B.A in Child Studies. Presently, I am studying my Master of Teaching at the University of Toronto's Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. This program will allow me to pursue my dream of becoming an elementary school teacher in 2019 in the province of Ontario.
