It is hard for me to believe that I have been teaching at CMS for 9 years now. This year I am continuing to teach Grade 7 and 8 Social Studies for French Immersion as well as Francais 7 and Literacy. My extracurricular events include our Café Français, Cinéma Français and Senior Boy's Basketball.
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 realize that they don't need to have all the answers as long as they can look somewhere to find what they need. Most importantly I want my students 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. For 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.
