TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching in Canada through the public school system and taught High School English and History to students with diverse backgrounds. I recently finished teaching for three years abroad at an International School in Bangkok, Thailand. My students were English Language Learners and Native Speakers alike, and I taught a range of ages and subjects at the Intermediate Level that included Science, Sociology, Literature and Advanced Placement Language and Composition. I participated in Extra Curricular activities that included Varsity Basketball, Student Council, Environmental Club, Student Newspaper and the Gay-Straight Alliance.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Learning Environment is a priority to me. I begin with a safe and inclusive space, and offer the opportunity for collaboration and student interaction on a regular basis. Structure, routine and organization are fundamental in my classroom. Classes begin with a "Minds On" activity in the form of a Brain Primer, Meditation or Formative Assessment / Bell Ringer quiz. The Learning Goal is introduced at the start of each lesson, and delivery ranges between short lecture or reading followed by scaffolding or inquiry-based activities. I prioritize collaboration and discussion in the classroom and work to engage students as much as possible in participating in a student-teacher dialogue centered around curriculum content. Critical thinking is the most essential skill promoted in my classroom. I'm always challenging my students to confirm how they know what they know, and to rely on trusted sources to support their findings. A huge component of credibility is Digital Literacy, which is a skill I work to instill in all of my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My best teacher moments are when I am humbled by my students.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my Bachelor of Arts Honors from Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, Majoring in English and Minoring in History. I was a student in the Concurrent Education Program, and taught in a variety of classrooms during my undergraduate degree, including Elementary, High School, Student Success and Experiential classrooms. I received my Bachelor of Education from Queen's University through the Concurrent Education Program with a specialization in Environmental Education. I later completed my Additional Qualification in Special Education. I am Google Certified Level 1 and have received training from the College Board for Advanced Placement Language and Composition and Advanced Placement Literature. I completed my 200 YTT in 2017 with Zuna Yoga in Bali, Indonesia.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I currently live in Toronto, Canada and spend my free time enjoying live music, scouring vintage and antique shops, cooking Thai food and doing yoga. I also love being outside as much as possible! I love animals and have a 15-year-old German Shepphard / Lab rescue and a 7-year-old Havana rabbit. I'm a fanatic for literature and love reading non-fiction and fiction alike! I like to rotate through a few books at one time. Right now I am reading George Orwell's "1984," Eckhart Tolle's "A New Earth" and Niel Degrasse Tyson's "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry."
