  About Me
I am a new graduate of the University of Calgary. With a 4. 0 GPA and a commitment to academic success, I finished my teaching degree early in spring 2020. My experience is predominantly with older children from 11-15 years old, but I incredibly charmed by pre-elementary and elementary aged children as well. What can I say? I went into teaching in order to help, support, nurture, and guide children. I am completely qualified to do so, heart and mind.
In my free time, I love socializing with my childhood friends, reading, going to the beach, thrift shopping, cooking, baking, knitting, and exploring this beautiful city.
I just moved to Victoria from Alberta, and am currently waiting for my teaching license to transfer over. I have a vulnerable sector check, and experience.
I am a warm, patient, personable person. I love to laugh, play, and talk with children. I think they have the most fascinating minds. My philosophy about children is routed in mutual respect and reason. I have developed meaningful connection with children because of my desire to listen to their agency and carefully explain the reasons behind my choices, suggestions, or directions. I believe that if children heard and understood a respect and admiration grows.
I would love to meet you and your little ones. Thank you very much for your consideration.

  Work Experience & Education Background
5 years experience, 0 references
Working in middle schools and junior highs, I have a lot of experience teaching. This experience transfers well into the world of childcare as I have learned a lot about how children's brains work from educating children. In order to foster a safe, open, thoughtful, and caring environment in a classroom a few things must happen. For starters, the children must know that the person in authority respects them. In this sense, children are more comfortable to be themselves. After respect is established, it becomes a mutual give and take between giving and receiving respect. After which, trust is created and so are thoughtful boundaries around expectations. To keep children safe, as the adult I feel like it is very important to remain consistent and incredibly clear in my intentions.
I hope to be able to use this methodology in order to cultivate a sincere connection within childcare.
