About Me:


My Job:
I am currently a grade 5/6 classroom teacher, team teaching with the wonderful Marcy Dubuc at Taylor Evans Public School in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  I tend to switch my role every few years, as I believe I can best serve students when I am fresh, excited and interested to try new things.  In my career I have worked extensively in the areas of Special Education and Library.  I also have a passion for Media Literacy and Technology.  In my varying roles I have taught everything from Kindergarten to Grade 8, but have also taught in the classroom for Grades 6, 7 and 8.   Within classrooms I love supporting students with learning challenges and disabilities and strive to teach students to effectively use technology to help them overcome their personal obstacles.






My Passion for Technology:


I love technology & realize the power it has in teaching, particularly students with learning challenges and disabilities.  I love training students and staff to effectively use technology to enhance their learning and workflow.  I am extremely fortunate that the Upper Grand District School Board, in which I work, has a Google Apps for Education Domain (UGCloud), as this technology is one of the most effective things I have used in education.
