My work experiences as a lifeguard, camp counselor, substitute teacher and school librarian have allowed me to grow and learn as a person.In many of these positions I had the opportunity to work with a children of different ages with a wide variety of needs and exceptionalities.I have learned that all children are unique and each brings with them a different experience, culture, ethnicity and background.Embracing these qualities allows for a diverse and rich learning environment.
I believe as an educator the most important role you play in a students’ life is to support their learning in an safe, positive and inclusive classroom.
I am looking forward to finally setting down roots in Yellowknife, NT.I appreciate everything the community has to offer and the diversity of the school settings here in the North.I look forward to further communication and if selected will put forth an effort which will not disappoint you.

I believe the role of the teacher is to create a safe learning environment that encourages respect and responsibility for self, others and community as a whole. Children learn in many different ways, and it will be up to me as a professional educator to seek to understand how each student learns best and to utilize this knowledge to meet the individual needs of the student.I will continually strive to demonstrate to students that what they are learning is relevant in the real world.My greatest goal as an educator is to facilitate the development of a virtuous person and a life long leaner, who will become a productive member of society.
To obtain a teaching position with the Yellowknife Education District #1 for the 2011-2012 school year.
