I'm a substitute teacher in the OCDSB and living happily in Ottawa, Ontario!
I believe that a teacher's life is one of joyful servitude. From the moment you step into a classroom you become responsible for not only the well-being of your students, but of all students. And it is your responsibility to provide an environment where task are respectful, parents are contacted and that you hold an unwavering belief that your students are capable of accomplishment.
My favorite thing in the world is that moment where a student's knowledge base is transformed. The "ah ha" moment where everything falls into place for them.

I was a part of the Developing a Global Perspective for Educators cohort during my Bachelor of Education. What this means is I was immersed in teaching and learning strategies that integrate international development education into classroom curriculum.
