I have been teaching since 1976.
I try to engage my students in learning. I do this by giving them information and support to complete assignments successfully. Though I primarily lead students through a topic, I also try to find ways to allow them choice as much as possible.

Bachelor of General Studies - Athabasca University Teaching Certificate - University of Saskatchewan
In addition to teaching Grades Five to Eight Language Arts and Social Studies during the day, I also tutor students from all grades in the evening. This combination of large group and one on one instruction helps me to stay focused on the individual and yet understand the importance of large groups assignments.
