TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Born, raised & educated on the East Coast of Canada I grew up with a beach bum as a mother and an engineer as a father. These experiences cultivated my passion for the environment and appreciation for numbers. Both my high school & undergrad university were near the Bay of Fundy, so I learned a lot about ecological sustainability and discovered how math and science blend together in real-world applications. At university, I also became fascinated with molecular biology and the crazy microscopic world of organelles that allow living organisms to function. I decided to merge my ecological and molecular interests and after completing undergrad I worked for a year as a marine biology intern researching diatoms (pretty cool little creatures!). When that term contract ended, I decided to pursue a master’s degree studying a tumor suppressor gene. I wanted to make a difference in the world and thought cancer research was my calling. Long story short, it turned out being tucked away in a lab was not for me and I was not into the ups and downs that is research. So I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I know that students need fewer worksheets and more hands-on activities to engage in learning and NUMBERS to NEURONS is where I share these types of resources with you! I’m organized, like my lessons to look good & love board games – characteristics I incorporate into the resources you’ll find here. Does this sound like your classroom? We’re meant to be teacher friends!

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Some big life-altering events happened in a span of 3 years – my mother passed away and I gave birth to two little girls. While on maternity leave I decided I wanted to help other math and science teachers who are in this never-ending tug of war between professional and personal commitments. Teacher life is hard and in my experience it gets easier when you find colleagues who are there to help and want you to succeed. My goal is to give you lessons and organization tips that are easy to follow, easy to set up and do-able. These are strategies and lessons that I use in my classroom with hands-on activities and/or games to engage students along with relevant assessment pieces (so you can check off those outcomes!). I’ve done the prepping so you can do other things with your time instead of lesson planning. I hope these resources are a piece of the puzzle and help you find the work-life balance you’re looking for.
