My teaching methodology is based on universal design. I believe that students should be given a lot of different ways to learn things so that they can figure out which one best suits them. I think that there are ways that we can do things for students who have a hard time in the classroom so that they have an easier time and that students around them can benefit from this as well.
I am a graduate of Brock University for my Bachelors of Education. Previously I graduated with a certificate of Creative Book Publishing Honours from Humber College. I completed my undergraduate degree from McMaster University with a Bachelors of Arts Honours.
I have 3 years of experience in the classroom either volunteering or in placement. I have a passion for reading and writing.

Sarah is a very sweet,kind,knowledgeable woman. I think that she would make a wonderful teacher as she is very kind, a good listener and is willing to help others
Sarah tutored my son who was struggling with his grade 2 level reading. He's now so much more confident and reading all the time! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
I have worked with Sarah for almost a year now and she is put simply the best person ever. Kind to everyone, funny , smart and so helpful to anyone who needs it. Sarah makes my work environment so much better and I’m so glad I met her! I know any student of sarahs would be so lucky to have her as their teacher!
