Where have you lived in the world?

I was born in Toronto and have lived in Toronto and Montreal.

What have you studied? How long have you been a teacher?

I studied at Concordia University and Montessori Teachers College. I have a Degree in Education, majoring in child and family studies, an Infant/Toddler Montessori Diploma, and my RECE diploma. I have taught for 8 years. 

What is something you are really good at?

I am really good at eating candy, soothing crying babies, decorating a space in my head and then making it come to life, and bringing humour to something that is simply not funny. Special talents also include binge watching tv series in one sitting and potty training puppies. 

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school?

I like going to the dog park to look at tall, dark, handsome men and then letting my dog humiliate me (I have a really badly behaved dog). Shopping. travelling, interior design. Buying lottery tickets. Day dreaming about winning the lottery.

What is something not everyone knows about you?

If you knew me really well, you would know that I have a very sarcastic sense of humour but I'm actually a nice person.
