TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a middle years and high school teacher for years, working at schools in 5 provinces. I also sat on the High School Literacy Committee for the Yukon Department of Education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a hands-on learner so I try to make my lessons interesting and engaging. I have taught many students who need to talk, get out of their seats, and get into the lesson so that's what I strive to share with you.
