TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an Ontario Certified Teacher (grades K - 6), but also tutor high school students in math and science. I have been in many different classrooms as a substitute teacher, but prefer teaching small groups or individual students. I have designed and taught science courses and drama courses for homeschooled students, as well as for the Association for Bright Children. I am currently in the process of developing a French Immersion curriculum for homeschoolers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to guide students to discover answers for themselves, but am not averse to giving direct instruction when necessary. If a student is struggling with the material, I delve deeper in order to discover and address the root cause of the difficulty. I try to address different learning styles and modalities by using a hands-on, multi-sensory approach with multiple activities to cement and reinforce learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

NSERC undergraduate research award (1999, 2000) at the University of Waterloo

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended the University of Waterloo where I completed an Honours Bachelor of Science in Geochemistry. I then obtained a Bachelor of Education (with teaching qualifications in the primary and junior grades) from Queen's University. I also have additional qualifications in special education and teaching French as a Second Language.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am currently homeschooling my two daughters and teaching drama courses for ABC Ottawa. I love writing lesson plans and designing curriculum for experiential education. I am also developing a curriculum to enable homeschooling families to create a French Immersion environment for their children, regardless of the parents' level of proficiency or lack thereof in the French language.
