My goal is to create a classroom environment that is safe, supportive, challenging, ethical, inclusive and engaging for students while recognizing their individual abilities, learning styles and personal motivation.
My York University Bachelor of Fine Arts degree was a four year degree in Film and Video Production and my LaTrobe University teaching diploma, which I undertook in Melbourne, Australia, was in English and Media (Communications Technology) methods.
I have been successfully teaching English and Media at a high school in Melbourne, Australia for the past eight years and have just recently moved back to Canada.
Additional to my educational background, I have a wide range of workplace and life experiences. I have lived and travelled extensively throughout the world and have enjoyed a variety of employment that has developed my creative and leadership abilities.
