TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my 15th year of teaching. I currently teach Grade 9 Math, Gr 7 Science, and Grade 7-12 Visual Arts. I love the challenges that middle school students bring to the room every day. It's a very special age to be a part of. They teach me so much.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am full of energy and fresh ideas. I love taking risks in the classroom - even when they don't pay off. To me, that's just part of the learning process. I am not afraid to fall on my face and I think it's healthy for my students to see me try and then try again, if things don't work out. I strive to make my lessons and activities as fun and engaging as possible. I like to incorporate hands-on activities whenever I can. I love using Math stations!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received a Teaching Excellence Award in March 2020. It is given out based on nominations by fellow staff.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I teach in PEI, Canada and attended UPEI for my BEd. My undergrad was in Psychology and Sociology. I also completed my Masters of Education in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a mom of 2 energetic boys. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart since 2004. I love teaching and only ever wanted to be a teacher. I know how precious time is and how quality work at a fair price can save us all time, if we're willing to share our resources. I'm all about working smarter not harder, as I'm sure all of you are. Happy Teaching:)
