Additional Information

I aim to inspire and motivate her students through passionate and enthusiastic teaching. 

The techniques I use for her interactive, hands-on lessons include the influences of Lev Vygotsky; Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences; Cooperative Learning; Tribes Techniques; and is shaped by 10 years' experience providing support services for children, youth, and adults with special needs and her experience as a Pre-Service Elementary School Teacher in the Toronto District School Board and Thames Valley District School Board.

I am also an avid volunteer in my community. In 2006, I received the Instructor of the Year Award (offsite).
