Biography

For the past three and a half years, I have taught aboriginal students on the Big Horn and Morley reserves in Alberta. These years have been the most incredible, challenge filled and inspiring years of my life. Working with these students has taught me the invaluable importance of education and has highlighted the need for change in aboriginal education. Through this Masters program, it is my goal to develop a better understanding of the complexities of Aboriginal issues and how I can best address them to support students in my classroom.

Prior to teaching, I volunteered as a Life Skills coach at Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Centre in Toronto, Ontario. This experience provided me with a foundation for my teaching career and has accredited me with the knowledge and understanding of how unique and exceptional every child is. I gained patience and a passion for overcoming boundaries and limitations to reach success: no goal is unreachable.
