Teachers - Elementary - Teacher 5B
I'm born and raised right here is Vermilion. I attended VES the first year it opened. I went on to J. R. Robson for High School, and then went to Augustana University College, and did an After-Degree in Education through Simon Fraser University. I started teaching at J. R. Robson in 2000 before coming to VES in 2005. My hobbies include reading, travelling, hockey, and weight training.
Teaching is such an amazing profession to be involved in. Poet William Butler Yeats once said, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” However, I also see it as keeping the fire lit during difficult times. The gift we can pass onto students is that learning each and every day is an opportunity that we should not and can not surrender. It is their right and duty as a human being, and this includes being the best person they can possibly be. This is where virtual learning and practice comes in.
Interacting with the future leaders of today and tomorrow is truly a humbling experience. Getting to witness learning processes and ultimately learning successes makes Education a noble profession!
