Mr. Deschenes' Grade 6 Classroom Site



ABOUT YOUR TEACHER
I am currently a grade 6 teacher with the Simcoe County District School Board.  I have taught with this board for sixteen years.  Previously, I taught from grades 4 to 8 with the Ottawa-Carleton Public School Board.  I began my teaching career in 1987.  
This is not my first profession.  Before becoming a teacher, I was an emergency room nurse for five years at Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.  I enjoy cycling on the trails.  I love to read and try to instill that love in my students.  I hope that this school year will be rewarding for all involved.  Let's work together to reach for success!
Just below you will find some helpful links to a variety of websites.  I encourage you to check these out from time to time
as they may help you with planning your presentations and projects or for studying before a test.
