Time flies when you are having fun but it is still hard for me to believe that I have been teaching at CMS for 7 years now. This year I am continuing to teach Grade 7 Social Studies,both French Immersion and English along with Science 7 ( FRIM) and Language Arts 7. I am excited to have two groups of Etudes Social 8 as well. My extracurricualr events include helping Mme Lerouge coach handball as well as planning and organizing Ecole Central cultural events such as our Café Français and Cinéma Français that will take place at CMS this year.
I consider myself a life-long learner as I entered the teaching profession after many years in policing and child protective services. For my students I want them to value education and not to think they need to have all the answers but to know how to find the answers and most importantly to value our society and the world we live in, appreciating our differences and our commonalities. Literacy is another passion for me in learning with the view that literacy is more than reading. Literacy is the way we acquire, interpret and use information in every aspect of our lives so to me literacy is the building block of who we are and who we become.
I look forward to meeting all of my new students this year and getting to know each one of them individually as we experience this school year.
