Welcome to our class blog! I just wanted to introduce myself and give you a bit of background information. Let me start off by saying I just love my job! This is my sixth year teaching at A. Lorne Cassidy. I am passionate about learning and teaching. This year my goal is to incorporate more inquiry based learning projects as well as to use our school iPads for a variety of media projects. I am a lifelong learner and love to incorporate new and fresh ideas into my classroom. There will be plenty of challenging and motivating opportunities to explore, discover and learn in a variety of ways. I believe all students can shine when given just the right tools, structure, encouragement, and guidance. I promise to work hard to connect with your child and help him or her see the different ways he or she shines. Over the past few years I have explored the world of blogging and using an interactive whiteboard to enrich learning experiences. Both these tools have proven to be engaging and effective. I have been teaching for 12 years and love how teaching provides me with many challenges and new learning opportunities.
I always encourage parents to be involved in what their children are doing here at school. I am hoping this blog will not only keep you informed but will also serve as a vehicle for you to talk to your child about their school day. In addition, I am always looking for parents to come and help out in the classroom as I strongly believe that when parents and teachers work together to foster a love of learning students thrive!
During our days together we spend a lot of time growing not only in terms of our academics but also as friends. When making decisions we try to treat others the way that we’d like to be treated. This makes our classroom and world a better place to be!
