I believe that developing self-confidence and reliability, as well as self respect, are important and necessary qualities. I believe that these characteristics are most important in the foundation of a student, and support my strengths based approach to teaching.
I am passionate about knowledge and education, and offer creative and new ideas to teach students that promote strength, confidence, and passion for learning.
My university education began at Concordia University, where I completed an undergraduate degree in Sociology. I then continued my education at the University of Ottawa, where I received a Bachelors of Education with honors.
My teaching experience began in 2008, where I worked at a school for special needs students. I then continued teaching elementary schools and high schools in both normative and special needs environments. This past year I have been working for a re-adaptation center specifically for autism focusing on ABA Therapy.
I am passionate about animals and while I myself have a dog and cat, I have also volunteered for many animal shelters. I also enjoy reading, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, and often will refer to a book for insight and therapeutic recreation. In addition, I also enjoy sports and work out regularly.
