A bit about my teaching experience

I have been teaching for 19 years. I decided to go to Teacher’s College after teaching in Japan for almost 2 years. I have taught in a big city school and a small rural school. I have been a PE teacher, an ESL teacher, taught subjects in grades 1 through 12, and was a full-time Teacher-Librarian for 6 years in a middle school of 1,200 students and about 70 staff.

I enjoy exploring and learning about technology and bringing it into my classroom. I have introduced Flipgrid, Google Docs, Teams, Nearpod, back channels, Sway, Plickers, Seesaw, Padlet – to name a few to my students.
