TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We are a husband and wife team of two, sharing a common interest of teaching. Ryan started his career in a private Christian school and taught there for just over 2 years. He had a 5/6 homeroom and did some 7/8 Media Literacy and History coverage. In November of his third year, he was hired in our local public school board for a grade 6 position. Starting his second year in the board, he has a grade 4/5 classroom. He's taught on the topic of technology at conferences and board workshops, and has written on using tablets in for guided instruction for a national educators magazine. Jeanna has a Social Work degree and a diploma in Makeup Artistry. She has creatively crafted a hobby that blends makeup with self care and holistic wellness. She has used this creative passion to teach women at our city's community health centre, and has taught two very successful courses on makeup for seniors. She's started a third term in January 2014. Her day job is raising our infant and toddler, and being home for our kindergartener when he steps off the bus.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Do PIXELS really affect PERCEPTION? Educators who care about their practice need to consider and examine practices that may better suit their students. This matters for university and college professors, calculus teachers, middle school science teachers, primary math teachers, and kindergarten teachers too! Even an educator of online courses and trades courses need to consider how to best get their message across to their student. So, do PIXELS really affect PERCEPTION? Consider how a grade 6 boy would perceive this math lesson... you hand him a yellowed page textbook from 1993 with a cracked cover and taped binding, and ask him to turn to page 223 and read the instructions. Or... consider streaming a Youtube video of the same learning outcome as page 223, and then have them use Google Earth to find and measure angles of buildings around the world.. Which would be more warmly perceived? Textbooks still have an important place. But so does technology. Teach Smarter!.
