Bachelor of Elementary Education with a Specialty Minor for Middle School: Grades 4 - 9 I am currently looking around for a suitable M.Ed. with a focus on early literacy, exploring folk tales and fairy tales and a tie in for mathematics.
I enjoy project based learning, student driven inquiry (especially in science) and using cooperative learning strategies. Within my inclusive classroom, I am exploring ways to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all my students. A few of the ways I enjoy implementing that is through use of manipulatives, technology, play based materials and centres I have created to teach and practice curriculum outcomes.

Teaching is a passion of mine and I have found my niche in the elementary classroom. I have a wonderful husband, who is also an elementary teacher, and we welcomed our baby daughter in July 2012. I love to read, sew and get outside to walk the miles away with my family. We love to camp, visit, and swim. Our summers are spent relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. This summer, we're planning to take up Geocaching and to introduce the baby to camping!
