Teachers - Elementary - Grade 4
I believe that students grow best when they each feel challenged and engaged, when they feel safe to express their feelings, and when their curiosity is piqued and explored. As a French teacher, I have been known for my ability to create a positive classroom environment where students are comfortable asking questions and making mistakes so that they can reach their full potential. My knowledge of language pedagogy is rooted in my time at the Université Paris 5 and the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education at the University of Toronto, where I studied Foreign Language Didactics and Education. This is my sixth year in the North, my fourth year in Education, and my first year at J.H. Sissons.
During my free time, you can find me at home “tickling the ivories” or in and around town with my two sticky-fingered children.
I look forward to this exciting school year!
