TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am an Educator with 15 years experience. During that time I have been a High School teacher, Social Studies Department Head, Vice Principal and Principal. As an administrator, I have worked in schools of all grade levels and am currently Principal in a Primary - Grade 9 school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom was built around the use of large scale simulations. A classroom simulation can best be described as a role-playing game with educational goals. Good simulations mirror real life and involve students in complex situations that challenge them to problem solve and work together. When a teacher uses a well-designed simulation, students can expect to find themselves in a wide variety of roles, from a police detective to an environmental activist to the President of the United States and almost everything in between. They will confront the problems and pressures of events as varied as an international crisis, corporate negotiations or a criminal trial. Too often students study events from a disconnected perspective, never garnering a complete understanding of complex situations. Simulations provide the opportunity for students to become the people involved and suddenly they are on the inside looking out. In taking on the roles of decision makers, they come face to face with complexities, motivations and consequences. Using a well-designed simulation makes learning an event and provides a chance for students to master content, build their skills, and gain a wider understanding of the world around them. They are also entertaining and engaging, drawing students into the activity and keeping them focused for long periods of time.
