Hi there! I’m Amanda, an OCT certified teacher with a passion for education that spans over 20 years. A graduate of the University of Western Sydney’s teachers college, I specialize in intensive support programs,  full-day kindergarten, literacy and special education.. I have a Diploma and a Degree in Recreation Leadership, and hold additional qualifications as a Reading and Special Education Specialist.

I bring an unwavering belief in the competence and capability of every child with the proper support. My approach revolves around emergent learning and play-based education, integrating strategies like Universal Design for Learning (UDL).  These approaches ensure that each student receives an education tailored to their unique needs, fostering a sense of inclusivity and empowerment.

Beyond academics, my life in Toronto revolves around my husband, our two children and our dog Willow, reflecting my commitment to family and outdoor activities. Summers are spent up north, supporting my husband in his role as a Director of a summer camp, embodying my belief in holistic and engaging learning experiences.

I believe in the power of personalized education, where experience meets innovation. Join me on a journey where your child’s potential is unlocked, nurtured, and celebrated. Together, let’s build a foundation for lifelong learning!
