    Objective

    My objective is to become a Curriculum Support Teacher who cultivates an effective and exciting environment for stuudent learners, by facilitating teacher development. My goal is to assist teachers to become confident and knowledgable in delivering a differentitated program by embracing best practicses and modelling the values of our Catholic community.

    My aim is to serve: to be a devoted servant to each colleague and all the students I support.  Whereas devotion is defined as "love given with the whole heart and will", a servant is defined as a "person devoted to a cause"; with those causes being individual and collective teacher success and improved student learning.

    I wonder

    "Wouldn't it be great to wake up each day kowing that you helped bring some ordinary into the life of a family who really needs it. When  most of us tire of the ordinary, families of sick kids pray for it."
