About Me



“The mediocre teacher tells, the good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrates, the great teacher inspires.” ~William Arthur Ward.

I believe that in order to be an effective teacher you must be a great educator who not only instructs students with the required material, but also inspires them to become an invested and motivated member within their school and community. It is important to establish respect, trust and a strong work ethic among my students, which will benefit their self-worth as well as life and social skills. I believe I embody a passion for helping individuals, the drive to create inclusive safe environments and the determination to help ensure students’ continuing success.


In 2011, I received my Bachelor of Education from Queens University, with Intermediate/Senior division qualifications in Drama and English. After becoming a member of the Ontario College of Teachers, I completed an additional qualification, in dance and special education in order to gain additional knowledge and expertise in differentiated instruction for students’ with diverse needs.


I am in my second year of employment as an occasional intermediate/secondary teacher with the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. I have taught English to students in year 7-12, with varied abilities, at Leeds East Academy in England.


I coached the Earl of March Girls’ Rugby Team and am heavily involved in directing, choreographing and participating in local theatrical and dance productions.
