I have been teaching secondary math for over ten years in Ontario. The following the courses which I have extensive knowledge in: 9 applied (MFM 1P1), 9 academic (MPM 1D1) 10 applied (MFM 2P1), 10 academic (MPM 2D1) 11 U/C (MCF 3M1) , 11U (MCR 3U1) Foundations for College Math, College Prep Grade 12 (MAP 4C1), Mathematics for College Technology, Grade 12 (MCT 4C1) Mathematics of Data Management (MDM 4U1)
I am always focused on finding and creating new and dynamic ways of teaching math curriculum with a focus on critical thinking skills by integrating more real-life examples and having students have more discovery based learning to solidify concepts (by stepping away from the “chalk and talk” format). I stay current on technological trends and integrate them as much as possible into my lessons (e.g. snapchat, instagram etc.), to add a 'hook' element and real life examples for my students. I currently create all of my lessons using Smart Notebook Software.
I studied and obtained my Honours Bachelor of Science with First Class Standings in Biology & Mathematics at Lakehead university. I have experience in graduate studies and statistical analysis, an also hold a Bachelor of Education with first class standing. I have furthered my professional education by taking AQ courses in Ontario and becoming a Religion Specialist, as well as holding my Special Education AQ part 1.
I live in beautiful Thunder Bay Ontario, am happily married and am a mom of three boys. I love demos, sarcasm, and prosciutto (and not necessarily in that order).
