TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for 14 years now and I am still feeling as passionate about making a difference as I was on my first day. I love my job and feel truly rewarded each day. Over the years I have taught from Kindergarden to Grade 7, with the majority of my experience being from 1 to 6.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands on learning in a fun, safe and supportive environment. I enjoy teaching an integrated curriculum through 'real and relevant' themes that capture and continually engage the interest of my students, regardless of age.
