I've just finished my 19th year teaching in the public school system in Ontario, Canada. While the fifth-grade program is where I specialized for many years, grade 2/3 is where I've worked for the past four years!
I strive to reach all learners by utilizing a variety of teaching styles and technologies! I love to make learning interactive and engaging by incorporating hands-on activities, and differentiation for reaching all learners is an important part of my classroom planning.
I completed my B.A. with a Child Studies focus in 1997, my B.Ed. with a primary/junior focus (K-6) in 1998, and my 3-part Mathematics Specialist Credentials in 2010. I strive to stay current with educational trends, technology and research, so I consider myself a lifelong learner!
I'd love it if you visited me at my blog, Mrs. Beattie's Classroom!
