For learning to be successful, teaching needs to be tailored and optimized for each student. By getting to know students, their interests and strengths, a teacher can provide a more engaging and captivating learning environment. I believe that all students should be given the opportunity to grow and develop academically and socially in the way that works for them. In order to achieve this, teachers should strive to make connections between learning goals and real world applications.
I graduated from Carleton University in 2008 with a bachelors in Civil Engineering. In 2012, I completed my bachelors of Education at the University of Ottawa. Finally last summer, I obtained my Additional Qualifications for grades 4-6 through Queen’s University.
I am a certified Math & Physics teachers (grade 7-12) with my additional qualifications certificate for grades 4-6. I have experience working for 1 year with Edmonton Catholic schools, where I taught Math, Science & Religion to students ranging from grades 7-12. I have also taught a grade 5 ESL class in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, for 1 year. I am also currently teaching an adult math course at a construction training center. Finally, I have a lot of experience tutoring, and working with youth (camps, volunteering, Sunday school, etc.)
I regularly volunteer with my church as a Sunday School teacher, camp counselor and retreat organizer/planner. I have also been on many retreats and mission trips including a year in South America and a few weeks in Rochester New York. Aside from my volunteering I enjoy swimming and camping.
