TEACHING EXPERIENCE

20 years (I can't believe it has been that long!) experience in various roles - classroom teacher, Resource and ELL specialist teacher, and now as a teacher-librarian.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to foster students’ natural curiosity, support them in both making 'mistakes' and in succeeding, and encourage them to explore all different types of materials (fiction and informational, print and online, images and text... you name it!). And to have fun!
