)1) Who inspired you to be a teacher? Why do you want to teach?
I always loved working with kids. I really wanted to make an impact in a child’s life – to help them have a love for learning. My 6th grade teacher, Mr. Farrar, really made learning fun with a lot of hands-on activities and real life learning experiences. I was inspired by him to teach in a way that my students are actively involved. I love seeing the spark in a child’s eyes when they grasp a new learning concept. The joy of knowing you played a part in that learning experience.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about Christian education. As a teacher in public schools for many years, I love that as an Ontario Christian teacher I get to teach my students about God. It is such a privilege to be able to teach kids about what an amazing God we have, and to share in their joy of learning about Him.
