Andrea Maxwell

Andrea Maxwell has been an early years educator for 14 years. In addition to her current role as a Grades three and four classroom teacher, Andrea acts as team leader in the areas of mathematics and technology at Centennial School in Lac du Bonnet. As a team leader, Andrea has created resources, common assessments, and support documents for teachers and has provided numeracy support for at-risk learners. She is also a divisional math leader within the Sunrise School Division. Andrea has developed and facilitated numerous professional development sessions and hosts teachers in her classroom to share her teaching practices. Andrea was the recipient of the 2013-2104 Minister’s Teaching Excellence Award for Early Years at Manitoba’s Celebration of Excellence in Teaching.

Andrea challenges her students to be global thinkers who apply new learning to their everyday lives. She provides multiple opportunities for students to experience authentic learning. Her students can often be seen around the community, digital cameras in hand, finding evidence of concepts that they are studying, using their math skills to convert recipes and bake, and filming each other with flip cameras to evaluate themselves and their peers. Andrea strives to implement current best practices to foster expertise and ensure individual success.

Andrea welcomes opportunities to share and to learn cooperatively with colleagues within the mRLC.
