I have been teaching full-time for 16 years, and have taught from grades 4 - 8. I currently have a 6th grade class. I teach all subject areas. I have a passion for integrating technology into my classroom and love the enthusiasm it creates in my students. I am a SMART Exemplary Educator, and have won an award for lesson content creation from SMART technologies.
I like to integrate technology into my lessons as much as possible. I have a SMARTboard in my room, and LOVE it! My students work in an environment where they are encouraged to explore, create and try new things.
Designated as a SMART Exemplary Educator Top 20 Canadian Finalist for Lesson Creation from SMART technologies.
