I have been teaching for over 25 years in British Columbia, Canada with most of those years being in second grade. I create resources that engage and inspire all my learners to want to learn more. I am a big believer in character education and I try to embed that into everything I do.
My style is very much focussed on the whole child and differentiation. I am very organized and thoughtful in my lesson planning. I teach focussed and scaffolded lessons based on the formative assessment I do. I am proud to encourage creativity and independence. My students feel supported, cared about, and empowered to learn more.
