I teach English 8-12 at Sullivan Heights Secondary. In 2009, I completed my Master of Arts at Simon Fraser University. I strive to integrate innovative learning, assessment and instructional practices into my classroom and to extend students' learning beyond the walls of the classroom! I am also department leader of our Learning Partners program, which facilitates and supports peer mentoring, inter-departmental collaboration and teacher inquiry. As well, I am a member of our Professional Development and Technology committees.
