Ottawa Senators Teacher Highlight and Most Valuable Teacher Nominee!
Why did you decide to become a teacher?
I always loved to interact with kids. Then that grew into a passion for seeing and experiencing learning first hand.
What has been your most memorable moment as a teacher?
Thus far, my most memorable moment would be creating a connection and ‘reaching’ a student who was always inside his head and who struggles academically, socially and mentally.
What is your favorite part of Future Goals and how are you using it in your classroom?
I absolutely love how prevalent the learning topics are! My students are engaged throughout the lesson’s entirety and are learning so much that will follow them beyond our classroom.
What was your student’s reaction to the program?
They absolutely love it! They are engaged and excited when I tell them that we are signing on. I honestly forget that they think the content “learning-based”.
Who is your favorite player?
Brady Tkachuk. He’s a solid hockey player!
