I am a pre-service teacher with a huge passion for active learning. I am currently a Master of Teaching student at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (University of Toronto). Over my entire undergraduate and graduate career thus far, I have completed 4 practicums at the primary/junior level. I am currently completing my thesis on the flipped classroom model, where I will study the impact of the model on 21st century learners at the K-6 grade level. 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 an active learning approach. I attempt to make the classroom as lively as possible to stimulate higher order thinking and maximize the learning process through the Universal Design for Learning and Multiple Intelligences approach. 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 for technology-led instruction.

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.
