I'm currently an occasional teacher and have been lucky enough to teach several different grades for various periods of time.
On my journey to becoming a teacher, I met a well-respected and insightful teacher; her advice to me was to be a learning facilitator. I took that advice and have strived towards it ever since. I believe that the students should be active in the lessons. They should be allowed to discover and engage with the material. As a result, throughout all of my lesson plans you will find an activity to get the students involved in their learning.

I have a B.A. from York University and my B.Ed from Western University.
In addition to teaching, I coach competitive gymnastics several times a week. I thoroughly enjoy coaching and see it as an extension of my teaching. This is my 10th year coaching.
