In addition to my B.Ed. I have a three-year B.A. in Studio Art. I enjoy working with children and have many years of summer camp experience including some EAL teaching at summer English camps in Italy.
As a distance teacher I am motivated by the individual stories of students and families. I enjoy being a small part of the unique world in which each of my students are learning. I hope to teach I believe if you can learn how to learn, you’ll be set for life!
This past year I took up a challenge playing my favourite sport, curling, competitively. It was a great journey, and who knows what will come next year, but I know I’ll always enjoy working to improve my game.
As a travel nut and someone who enjoys working with youth and children, I’ll be leading a group of youth to a gathering in Ontario over the summer break.
I love to be outside and I love to be doing things over sitting around!
Someday I’d like to be able to say that I have set foot on each continent. So far the count is three.
In my spare time I like creating new things, often out of old ones. Sewing, painting over old thrifted art, maybe I’ll even try out some small carpentry type projects this year!?
