The art of teaching requires not only the actual instruction and assessment, but also all of the planning, communicating, marking, and of course learning. If done correctly, teachers can create master works of art, which will be shown not only through assessment, but through the energy and passion within the classroom.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology at Vancouver Island University. I have also completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Western Ontario.
I have taught grade nine and ten Science, and grade twelve Biology. In addition to my classroom experience, I have volunteered with Genome British Columbia’s GeneSkool for the past two summers, where I have helped guide students through labs and activities. Finally, I have had several other volunteer experiences where I have been in an educator role to younger students.
I enjoy volunteering with my local walking dogs and socializing cats. I also volunteer with a local science and conservation group, and running activities for children that are centered around science. Additionally, I spend my time taking my dogs for walks, going for swims in the ocean and biking in the trails around the area.
