I have been teaching in Halifax, Nova Scotia for 14 years. I have been teaching at the elementary level from Primary all the way to grade 6.
To provide a safe and nurturing classroom and to help the students develop a sense of self-confidence, self-worth and help develop the students critical thinking abilities . Students learn best when they are active learners being challenged inside and outside the classroom. I try to help each student find their own voice.
