I have taught in both public and private schools in British Columbia, Canada. I love both, and am currently on-contract with a wonderful local Christian school. :)
My main philosophy is: know your students and adapt to their needs. We can plan all we want, and create the most beautiful materials imaginable, but it all goes out the window if we have learners who need something different. I am up for that challenge!
No teaching awards yet, but I am young in my career, and I love what I do!
I have a bachelor's degree in European History from the University of Victoria. (History fanatics, unite!) I then went on to study Elementary Education for a second bachelor's degree, as a post-degree-program from the University of British Columbia.
