INTERESTS

Literacy I am interested in developing my skills as a literacy coach and teacher for struggling students. My future plans include additional qualifications in Reading and Special Education as well as becoming more aware of the various strategies employed in teaching literacy to struggling readers.

Science/ Mathematics In the process of gaining additional qualifications in Intermediate Mathematics and Smartboard technology skills.

Volunteered in instructing LEGO Robotics and am interested in developing a program to bring this into science classes and clubs in the primary/junior divisions of area schools.
