TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 15 years in various grade levels. For a one year stint I was also in a literacy coordinator position. I have taught in many split grade classes in rural areas, but the last 6 years of my teaching and professional development has focused on FNMI (First Nations, Metis, Inuit) students and communities. Approximately 86% are Cree from two First Nations Reserves. Many live in kinship care or group home care facilities, and / or are in need of behavioural, learning and mental health supports. These last 6 years have been the most rewarding of my teaching career.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use Dr. Martin Brokenleg's Circle of Courage philosophy and attachment theory as the basis for my program development. In my career I have had the most success with students focusing on building relationships with them, their parents and communities and forging a sense of belonging in my classroom. I also like inquiry based learning and have often been heard saying that if I had a Magic School Bus I would teach just like Ms. Frizzle. Learning in Alternative Environments and hands on as much as possible. In the end I use whatever strategy I can to engage students - whatever works!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a 37 year old farm girl - born, raised and educated in rural Alberta. I live on an acreage with my dog Clover, cat Norman and a few peacocks. In my spare time I enjoy crocheting and have a small crochet business with my best friend and soul sista' called "Two Hick Chicks Creative Designs." I am planning to teach my three year old Catahoula to pull a kick sled so that we can hit the trails! Also, I love spending time with my nephews getting into as much fun trouble as possible :) I hope you enjoy my resources as much as I enjoyed making them, and as much as my students enjoy working with them.
