All About Mrs. Harrold

This year I will be teaching Grade 1. 

I am a graduate of Notre Dame High School (Red Deer) and attended the University of Lethbridge. I graduated with a degree in Math Education and a degree in Science. I started teaching in 2009 and I have experience in Kindergarten, as well as Grades 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7. My philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. I believe in inclusive education, learning from hands-on experiences and learning through a variety of methods. Furthermore, I believe in allowing children to be able to grow in the areas of independence and responsibility. I am passionate about respecting the environmentStudents in my classroom will learn about reducing, reusing, recycling, composting and gardening.  I love traveling and enjoy learning about other cultures. I enjoy spending time cooking, reading, exercising and in the company of my family.  One of my favourite ways to relax is by practicing yoga. I am a certified Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher. Students in my classroom will learn basic yoga poses.
