Welcome to my blog!
As a teacher, I am always thinking of ways to incorporate the fun, fascinating and sometimes puzzling things I see and experience online and in real life in my teaching. This is where I compile and pass on some of those things. Of course, you can also get the latest class news and announcements here. To help you stay on top of your work, updated assignment lists with due dates, as well as, important files and documents will be posted on the class pages. Feel free to participate by commenting, tweeting or just exploring this blog.
And this wouldn’t be an About section if I didn’t tell you a little bit about me:
“Teaching has always been my passion” is probably the most overused teacher line, but in my case, it really rings true. I am fortunate to have had wonderful teachers who made school an exciting, stimulating and comfortable place. So much so that I remember mimicking them when playing school and even borrowing some of their great lessons as a new teacher.
Because of the positive experiences I had as a student, I set out to become a teacher. I started off small with tutoring in high school. After university, I went on to teach in elementary and secondary schools in Japan, Korea, Trinidad and Tobago, Germany and Canada. It was so exciting to find that I could feed my love of travel and international foods, while also developing my teaching skills. Although I hope to settle in Canada, I will always be looking for new opportunities to see the other corners of the world. I think Kruger Park in South Africa is next on my travel wish list…
Over the course of my teaching career, I have worked with many teachers who have inspired me. And I’m sure that in the years to come, I will continue to learn from teachers, students, parents and other professionals, and figure out how to incorporate their brilliance into my teaching. But above all, I will work to be a caring and involved teacher that will help my students succeed in achieving whatever goals they set for themselves.
