What do you teach?
I teach primary/junior reading, writing and math. I also work with intermediate students who aim to strengthen their foundational skills.

Why did you become a teacher?
I love working with kids, getting to know how each student thinks and learns and helping them to achieve their goals.

How would your students describe you?
My students would describe me as patient, compassionate, encouraging and fun 🙂

What’s your favourite challenge to help students overcome?
My favourite challenge to help students overcome is a lack of confidence in their own abilities. It is wonderful to see students build their skills and realize that they are capable of achieving their goals.

What’s your favourite thing about working at RRLS?
The positive, thoughtful, creative, collaborative community at RRLS makes it a great place to work and learn!

What’s your favourite way to spend an afternoon?
My favourite way to spend an afternoon is going for a walk in the woods with my daughters and watching them explore…then stopping at a café for a treat and talking about the day.
