Through collaborative inquiry, systematic instruction, and sustained school/ community partnerships, effective educators provide students with the skills needed to be reasoned thinkers and effective communicators. Culturally diverse systems of education must provide students with the skills to learn, and the behaviours to practice, in order that they develop the ethical and respectful values of successful global citizens. Today’s students need the ability to be reasoned thinkers and effective communicators.
As educators it is our mandate to create schools where students are able to explore all academic, cultural and technological programs of interest, where students are able to acquire knowledge about the past and the future, and where students are able to expect and respect cultural diversity. The role of educational leaders is to support the academic and personal well being of those within the school community and to provide opportunities to expand the boundaries of personal experiences.

A compassionate and positive educator with teaching experience from K -12, and expertise in the areas of cross-curricular instruction.
