A bit about me...
This is my third year at Bruce Trail Public School, and I am excited about teaching class 4-4!
Before I became a teacher, I worked in several museums in the Toronto and Hamilton area giving guided tours to adults and educational programs to students. I enjoyed working with kids the most, and realized I wanted to have a bigger impact on children than a hour visit. I attended Brock University, and spent some time teaching in the United States before moving back to Canada.
My goal as a teacher is to have kids enjoy coming to school and learning. I feel that authentic learning tasks, where students are discussing and engaged in real world events, are very meaningful. I am passionate about social justice, and plan to incorporate that into our classroom. I also do view inquiry as an important process that helps students drive their own learning.
I think kids need movement breaks as well as opportunities to collaborate and opportunities to work independently. I am excited about some of my new learning which I will bring into the classroom this year, which include mindfulness and restorative practice circles as a way to learn and build community.
