My name is Kim Baxendale and I am an Early Learning Full Day Kindergarten teacher. I have been teaching in the public elementary school system for over 25 years. At the beginning of my career I was a grade one and two teacher but for the past 15 years I have worked solely in kindergarten. I love my job and I have a passion for teaching students how to read and write. One of my main goals throughout the school year is to foster independent critical thinking and self confidence among my students. My daughter Emily is currently teaching grade 7. She is a student centered teacher focused on promoting critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Inquiry based, hands-on learning.
