Grade 6 Homeroom Teacher, Grades 6-8 Language Teacher, Grade 6 Social Studies Teacher
I believe that what matters most in schooling is that a school fosters a safe and positive learning environment and community that promotes student growth and achievement, as well as their individuality. Schools must support students in their own journey of self-discovery and offer a variety of learning opportunities that support the diversity of all learners.
I believe that what matters most in education is that children feel safe to confidently pursue their goals. It is my belief that children can achieve their goals when they are provided with the necessary skills, resources, and environments in which to grow. By cultivating a love of learning, a commitment to self-growth, and a consciousness of character and community in students in these purposeful environments, educators can actively lead students on a path towards their highest selves, academically and personally, for the greater good of all.
I like being part of a community of educators and learners with high expectations for learning and the motivation to make consistent positive change in the surrounding community and the world at large.
I have a wide variety of hobbies and interests. Throughout the year, I enjoy reading, getting outside, practicing yoga, dancing, and spending time with friends and family. In the warmer months, I love to bike, hike, and read a book at the beach or cottage. In the cooler months, I love to cross-country ski and snowboard, often following my outdoor excursions with a session of knitting and a warm cup of tea!
