I have been teaching for 20 years now. Teaching has taken me around the globe. I completed my studies in Canada and taught there many years before moving to Europe. I am currently teaching overseas. The experience is wonderful. But, I do miss home and hope to go back soon.
My classroom is a busy place, with texture and color all around. I draw on all sorts of inspiration from playing with food, to songs, chants, games, and construction. I love task cards, literacy, math games and bulletin boards and throw giant pillows on the carpet for quiet reading time. I believe children should be actively engaged and indulge in "experiencing" life around them, and I'm a firm believer in cooperative learning.
I have presented at conferences for ESL and Classroom Management Strategies.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, and a Master of Arts in English Language and Literature.
