My first language is English, but I am fluent in French and understand a fair bit of Spanish.
I am deaf in my right ear, which comes with many challenges, especially in an online, language environment.
Growing up, my family raised Katahdin sheep, which are low-maintenance, meat sheep. We had one that had to be bottle fed and she literally followed us onto the school bus one day when we were running a little late with her bottle.
I teach because it is so rewarding to see the lightbulb click on a child when they finally understand a concept. In the online world, this looks different, but there are still those moments when you can see that a student has really understood and feels so very appreciative of the help that you have given along the way.
I volunteer with various community organisations, lending a hand wherever possible, from operating a cash table to creating posters/advertisements for the event, to participating and having fun. The past couple years, I have also volunteered with the production crew for Telemiracle, in Saskatoon and Regina, doing a lot of behind the scenes work to ensure that the show runs as smoothly as possible.
