About me

Location Vancouver, Canada
Introduction I teach Grade 6/7 in B.C.'s Lower Mainland. An avid user of the digital medium, I happily adopt the moniker of "tech geek". My educational philosophy centres on the principles of Assessment for Learning (AFL). As an educator of 21st century skills, I facilitate and activate the skills and passions of my students, rather than instruct, on their journeys towards becoming independent learners. I firmly believe that the proper use of technology is integral to student learning; educators who can tap this resource will help their students take ownership of their learning. I am an innovative learner, and so are my students. When not tweeting, posting, taking photographs, developing, and creating, I surf, snowboard, kiteboard and sit in amazement as my 2 year-old accesses our on-line photo library.
