I will be returning as a grade 1 teacher this year. Last year was a wonderful experience, learning about the community and being able to meet the wonderful people in it. I hail from Ontario and have made my way up here to teach as a way to broaden my knowledge and horizons. I believe teaching is a community based effort so I hope to have involvement from the residents of Atikameg. I try to provide engaging lessons to promote learning as an ongoing and lifelong endeavour. The success of your child in literacy and other subjects is my primary goal as a teacher but I also want it to be a fun experience getting there. I look forward to connecting with parents, community members and residents throughout the year and here is to a great 2015 - 2016 semester.
