TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over 20 years in K to 2 classrooms. I specialize in early primary and ESL classrooms.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style has evolved over the years. I strongly believe in demonstrating and supporting respect for all people in the class. That said, I also believe in structure and firm boundaries. I believe that children work best in an environment where they have a lot of choice to do hands-on activities. Children need plenty of opportunity to walk around and to talk when learning. I also strongly believe that children learn to read when they read every day, especially struggling readers.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have three university degrees. A B.A. in English Language where I studied the history and development of the English Tongue, not the literature developed from it. I also have a B. Ed and a Masters of Education. I specialized in Primary education and curriculum development. I also have 10 years of classical piano training from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto.
