Curriculum Vitae

​Professional 

information​
 

I have been teaching for more than twenty years in the Lower Mainland of BC, Canada.  I have taught most subjects K-7 and Humanities 8-12.



I love what I do.  My main goal whenever I work with individuals, groups or classes is to make a connection with them and help them connect more effectively with themselves, their world and each other.



I look for the dry kindling within the students I work with that I might (to paraphrase Y.B. Yates) "light a fire" in my students.

 

I seek to inspire and be inspired by those with whom I work.

Clayton Elementary

2012 - 2014

I am currently working as an Elementary Learning Support Teacher at Clayton Elementary in the Surrey School District working with students from Kindergarten to Grade 7.  I have extensive access to iPads and this has enabled me to 'play intentionally' with these devices as I seek to discover how they might positively impact the students I work with.
