I am a ninth year public school teacher but worked for three years prior to starting with the board as a private educator for children with autism. I have additional qualifications in Special Education and French as a Second Language and I currently teach Grade 1 EFI (Early French Immersion). In previous years, I taught Senior Kindergarten in the morning and Core French to Grades 1 to 4 in the afternoon. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy making teaching units that will engage, excite and inspire my students and hopefully yours!
