Teacher from Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area with experience teaching English, Social Science, Religion, and ESL

Methodology

My approach to learning involves a student-centered lens by incorporating student voices and student knowledge as legitimate and important to learning. I believe that empathy and understanding of students' diverse needs is at the core of any successful teaching methodology.

Background

I received my teaching degree from the University of Toronto, specializing in Social Science and Religious Studies at the secondary level. I also obtained certification in ESL, Special Education, and Health and Physical Education. I previously received a Combined Honors Degree in Religious Studies and Sociology from McMaster University.
