I am currently enrolled at Nipissing University Schulich School of Education’s iTeach Laptop-Learning Program and will be fully qualified to teach in May, 2011.

My pre-service teaching includes experience at the Primary/Junior Division with the Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic School Board at St. Alexander and St. Hubert school’s.During my tenure at Nipissing University I have gained the opportunity to expand my knowledge of technology used within the school systems.I am familiar with iTEACH Laptop-Learning Program, and SMART Board programming ideas.In addition, I will be qualified to teach at the Junior/Intermediate Division (Health and Physical Education) and will have completed my Special Education Part I, as of June, 2011

Throughout my various roles as outlined in my resume, I have demonstrated a strong sense of professionalism.I have a keen interest in child development through education and physical activity.My strong academic leadership skills provide me with the ability to take initiative, be adaptive, take direction, and to be flexible within the parameters of the school setting.I have belonged to many types of teams throughout my life, some in sports and others in the workplace. I have a strong value for team work and believe that by working together we can all do more. I believe that my skills and experience will be an asset to your school board.

My pre-service teaching provided me with the opportunity to plan and teach lessons in a variety of subject areas. I implemented a variety of teaching strategies, attended staff meetings, helped organize the Christmas Concert, and organized intramural activities prior to announcements. I also had the opportunity to get to know some of the student’s parents, this reinforced that teaching is holistic in nature and that a child’s life is beyond just the classroom.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.I would be pleased to respond to any further questions in an interview and/or can be contacted at 705-495-7186 or through e-mail at
