I am an Elementary teacher in Vancouver, B.C. After teaching for 21 years in one school in the downtown east side of Vancouver, I have moved to a new school very close to home. I usually teach Grades 2, 3 or 4 (often combined or multi-age classes). This age is full of wonder and fun energy!
I believe in celebrating learning and honouring students. Classroom communities are vital places full of important relationships, risks, mistakes and lots and lots of joy.
It is always a pleasure to share some of my classroom world and everything I learn from the students I teach.
I am also completely obsessed with children’s literature and love to share my reading life with my students, my colleagues and my reading community. Books make their way into almost every conversation that I have. There is always something that reminds me of a story, a character or a particular scene. Whether you have asked or not, I may suddenly exclaim as we are talking, “There’s a book for that!”
Because there always is . . . .
