TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a Kindergarten teacher for 10 years, and really loved it! Such an amazing age, and so many creative options for how they can learn. My students over the years are who inspired me to write my first book, and that was a springboard for all of my work.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in doing everything we possibly can to improve the emotional well being of our students. Kids need specific instruction on how to deal with life's frustrations and difficult issues. Mental health issues are on the rise, and teachers are a key resource to helping prepare students, by teaching self efficacy skills and giving them a chance to USE those skills!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have received glowing reviews for my books, 'I Can Handle It', and 'I Matter' available on Amazon!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

4 year Honours undergraduate program at Lakehead University, and then a 1 year teachers college program at Lakehead University. H.Ba, H.BEd

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am an author, educator and a speaker. I run an entrepreneur group for women locally, have online courses to help parents and educators deal with anxiety in children and parenting in general, and in addition to speaking at conventions, workshops and in schools, I gave a TEDx talk this year, on the topic of letting our kids be more WILD. I am not currently teaching as I have chosen to take the time off to be at home with my 3 kids. My books can be found on Amazon, my TEDx talk is on YouTube! Find me on Facebook as 'The Emotions Coach'.
