I have twenty two years teaching high school English. I teach a broad range of students, from those in the non-academic stream to those in the international baccalaureate program.
My style is constantly evolving, but I have always seen my self as a guide, rather than a sage on the stage. My focus is on learning how to learn, critical thinking and love of reading. I also attempt to incorporate physical activity in my classroom so students can engage all of their learning styles. Most importantly, I'm a learner too!
Yet to be added
I have a BA in English from King's College, a B.Ed from UPEI, and an M. Ed in curriculum studies from Acadia.
