First year teaching complete! I am proud of my first year ups and downs, highs and lows and am pleased on how my year turned out. Previously I have worked in special education for 6 years, mainly working with children with autism ages 4-10. My new challenge for this year is homeroom 5ieme annee French Immersion! (our math stays in english though) always up for a challenge. I teach in a trilingual school on a First Nations reserve just outside Montreal, Canada. Being trilingual is very important to the community, and I do my best to be able to speak and use all 3 languages. I myself am bilingual (English and French). I studied Spanish in high school, and Sanskrit in university. Now that my fiancee and school are Mohawk, I am doing my best to learn Mohawk as well. Learning languages is beneficial on so many levels academically and socially, I am so proud of my students for committing to becoming trilingual.
Calm, hands-on, applied learning, teamwork, discussion-oriented, problem solving ...
smiles and thanks from students and parents.

Hello, I am a second year teacher from Montreal trying to provide fun, meaningful, learning opportunities for my students. Teaching is my passion! I started working with special needs students as a part-time job when I was 18 years old. And, after 6 years of wonderful work with children with autism I decided to dedicate the rest of my life to children's learning. In my personal life I am recently married to the love of my life, we are about to get a new puppy, and I really enjoy making all natural soaps for my super sensitive skin in my spare time!
