After spending my first two professional teaching years in Northern Canada, I decided to bring my skills down south to Costa Rica. It was the best decision of my life!
My students love that I share my personality with them! I take the time to understand them so that they will take the time to understand me. My students are eager learners who strive for excellence. The culture of my classroom: high expectations and accountability for both the student and the teacher!
Still too young for those! This year, I took on the responsibility of Field Studies Coordinator. I'm not sure if this is applicable, but it is an honourable position, in my opinion.
Fantastic. Sacred Heart in LaSalle, Ontario - my fifth grade teacher inspired me to be just like her!! St. Thomas of Villanova in River Canard, Ontario - arguably the greatest teaching staff on the planet. Tons of personality, great extracurriculars, and inspiring educators. Five-year U of Windsor BA, BEd, ECE w/ Visual Arts major... most teachers not-so-enthusiastic (you know who you are)... but that's okay. Sometimes it is good to see what not to do!
I have taught over 12,000 private music lessons (guitar, drums, piano) and I am in two great bands in Costa Rica.
