Teaching Experience

For the past eleven years I have taught English and history at the secondary level. I have also been a teacher librarian and have worked as a literacy learning coordinator for the Thames Valley District School Board. I have taught at the Faculty of Education at Western University. Currently, I am an e-Learning teacher in addition to being a classroom teacher and I am writing e-Learning curricula for the Ontario Ministry of Education.
