I have known that teaching was my vocation since I was 8 years old. Upon completing my Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from Queen's University, I decided to do something selfish before giving all of myself to my career. For this reason, I moved to California, in order to record an album. After accomplishing this goal, I returned home to Toronto where I obtained my Lower Elementary Montessori Teaching Certifications and also my Bachelor of Education from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto.
I have been fortunate enough to have taught for the Toronto District School Board for the past 12 years. In this time, I have taught grade 1&2 for 11 years and grade 2&3 for one year. I have also had the opportunity to teach workshops at OISE for three years on how to foster leadership in the primary classroom.
