Hello, beautiful! This is my 17th year of teaching K-3 in Ontario/France. I've always thought "outside the box" and my resources are hands-on, creative and a tad spunky...just like me ;-)
I started my teaching career in France in the summer of 2000 immediately after graduating from the Faculty of Education at Queen's University. I taught at a prestigious private school in Paris and then worked at a small private school located in Tours, France in the Loire Valley for 2 years. After moving back home to Canada, I taught French Immersion Kindergarten. I currently teach Grade 2 at a wonderful school just outside of Toronto, Ontario.
I was chosen to be on the cover of a French Catholic Teaching Magazine reading "Where The Wild Things Are" with some of my sweet Kindies at the time. It was the first picture book I bought before moving over to France and I still have it.
I have my Bachelor of Arts in French and History from Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario. I did my third year of University in Nantes, France at the Faculté de Lettres. My Bachelor of Education is from Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario. I have my Special Education Part 1 and my Reading Specialist.
My goal is to make my students want to come to school because it's a safe, fun, happy, nurturing and amazing place to be.
