Our job is not to shape our children’s minds; it’s to let those minds explore all the possibilities that the world allows. The purpose is not to change the people we love, but to give them what they need to thrive. -Alison Gopnik

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been supporting students with diverse needs in Vancouver's (Canada) public schools for the past eight years. My specific training areas are Deafblindness, working with and developing communication systems, behavior support, trauma-informed practice, promoting inclusion, and social-emotional learning. I have primarily worked supporting students in elementary schools, though I have also worked in high school settings in life skills and alternative programs.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My passion is teaching through the arts! As a visual artist and children's book illustrator, I believe that creating and enjoying art can help students engage in social-emotional learning. As the developmental psychologist, Alison Gopnik is quoted above as saying, it is our job to help children thrive by giving them the ingredients they need to meet their unique potential and destiny.
