I am passionate about education and educational pedagogy. I have taught primarily in an early years setting since 2005.


Everything that I do in the classroom centers around the idea of student engagement. I am a firm believer that when students are highly engaged, they are learning at an optimal level. Any lesson or activity that I do centers around this belief.
