Teachers - Grade 2 French
I am joining École Brentwood this year as the Grade 2 French Immersion teacher, building on the fabulous French Immersion program that has recently been started. Before Brentwood, I was teaching a grade 3/4 class in Drumheller. I have also had teaching experience abroad in the United Kingdom, where I had the pleasure of teaching a year 3 class. I have substituted and done practicums in each of the grades ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 6, and have a passion for working with primary grade students! I have also had the opportunity to do an alternative practicum in an intensive behavioural intervention autism classroom, where I co-taught and assisted with the implementation of alternative learning methods and social skill lessons for children with autism.
I am originally from Ontario, where I developed my French background through my own French immersion learning and achieved a minor in French through my post-secondary studies. I also did a foreign exchange to France for a summer, where I lived with a family in the heart of rural Bretagne, France.
I am a dog lover, with an adopted pooch named Finley, who I love with all my heart. I am a travel seeking adventurer. I also enjoy taking part in theatre, dance, and the other arts!
I am excited to join the Brentwood team this year!
