Not every student learns the same, and so I believe the role of the teacher is to create a community wherein they know and understand how their students learn. Through this understanding they can then find ways to help students become engaged and discover the joy that is learning and growing.
I received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Northern British Columbia. I majored in History and minored in English. I then received my Bachelor of Education from Simon Fraser University, with a minor in secondary education.
Within my first year of graduating, I began working as a substitute teacher. In the ten years that followed I have supply taught, worked as a classroom aide, taught grades five and six, and taught grades eight to twelve.
I enjoy reading, writing, running, and walking. I also have a fondness for movies and some video games.
