ANNE M.

As an educator it is my belief that students learn best when they believe they can learn; when the learning environment supports their emotional, social, and cultural needs and when the learning is authentic. After completing my Concurrent Bachelor of Education Degree (Queen’s University) in 2017, I moved to Sweden to teach at the Internationella Engelska Skolan Årsta. Following my two years as a full-time permanent teacher in Sweden, I returned to Ontario and am currently employed by the Halton District School Board as an Occasional Teacher. My diverse experience working with children of all ages has provided me with the skills to enable children to achieve success while celebrating their individuality. Further to this, I have developed further skills by completing additional qualifications in Reading, Mathematics, Special Education, and English Language Learners (via Queen’s University). My commitment to success stems from my passion for life-long learning and growing. I strive to learn and grow with each individual I work with by implementing the skills and strategies I have gained over the years.
