I have over twenty years experience teaching the elementary grades in language arts, health, social studies and in both Primary ENGLISH and FRENCH.
I LOVE teaching both English and French!!! My philosophy in teaching is that if I have FUN teaching, then my students will have FUN learning. I enjoy teaching because I really enjoy the challenges of creating activities that "hook" my students into an environment that is safe and conducive to positive experiences--activities that make me connect with my students. Welcome to my store where the FUN has just begun!
I love teaching FRENCH and ENGLISH. I feel that in order to learn any language students need to be engaged. I think that visual learning is awesome as clip art and illustrations in general are the catalyst that "hook" a student in. I love creating products that include all students and make everyone a winner!
My education spans in diverse areas. I have a University degree in French and English, an Early Childhood Education Diploma, and a Master of Science in Education. Moreover, I have prepared learning materials for teachers across North America for a publishing company. I have also edited several children's books.
I am married to a wonderful and supportive husband. I have four grown up children, and a menagerie of animals- two dogs, a parrot and many outdoor wild backyard animals that visit seasonally.
