Bachelor of Arts (Queen’s University), Bachelor of Education (Queen’s University), 5 years, 1 years at KCS
As a classroom teacher at KCS, I feel blessed to be able to celebrate the individuality of each student. Through devotional discussions, weekly Circle, and Encouragement Teams, I feel that God works through me to provide experiences for His children that will enrich their educational experiences and develop deeper relationships with one another and, most importantly, with Him. Through Project-Based Learning and Genius Hour, my students are encouraged to explore His world through experiential learning that helps them to see how they fit into God’s diverse and incredible world and how they can make a difference, regardless of age. Learning from mistakes is something that is celebrated every day, where a Growth Mindset is encouraged and nurtured within our safe classroom environment.
What better way to bring glory to God than through music? I am very blessed to be able to lead praise every week within our school community in our Praise and Worship assemblies and Choir. Watching the students use their gifts in our school-wide musicals and throughout the Kingston community is also a highlight for me.
Teaching at KCS is a vocation, not an occupation, and I am truly honoured to be part of this incredible Christian community.
