I am an elementary education teacher through and through. I've had the pleasure of teaching grades 2-6 at various points in my career. I have a botany degree, and a specialist teaching certificate in visual art education. My favourite thing in the world is to teach art to the little ones. They are so excited to see what they can produce!
I love to combine all of my interests, knowledge, and hobbies together to give the kids a really enthusiastic program. I integrate as much as I can, and always throw in a twist of art. Most important to me is establishing a connection with my students. I want them to know they are safe physically, intellectually, and emotionally in my classroom. If they don't feel safe, they won't learn. I can give them that.
I've been honoured to work at the same school for over 10 years. Love the school, love the culture, but most of all I LOVE the kids!
