Helping children to learn and grow has been my life's work. I love interacting with them; really getting to know them, and sharing in and contributing to their lives. Children are a constant source of amazement. They keep you in stitches half of the time and completely unnerved by their intelligence the other half!!

 

It was the this love of children that prompted me to leave my home in Fredericton, NB and make the move to Halifax to pursue my Bachelor of Child Studies at Mount Saint Vincent University. Since obtaining my degree I have had the opportunity to work with children in a variety of settings including private homes, daycare settings, hospitals, and public schools.

 

My responsibility as an educator does not begin and end in the classroom. Teaching is a life-long journey of learning. It is essential to continue building my teaching skills through participation in workshops, reading, learning about new philosophies and teaching strategies, exchanging ideas with colleagues and learning from observing the children in my care.

 

I look forward to partnering with you to provide the best of care, nurture and education to your child.

Being a part of young children's lives as they learn and develop has always been a passion of mine. I believe in the uniqueness of each child and love to help them grow into the wonderful individuals they are. Teaching children has taught me that even though they are little, they can teach us a lot about ourselves and our world if we just stop and listen!

 

My background began with me earning a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Child and Youth Studies) degree from Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax. Since then I've had the pleasure of working with children of various ages in Developmental centers, private homes, daycare centers, public schools and preschools. I continue to challenge myself to learn new and fun ways to engage and teach children daily.

 

I am happy to be a part of the BCBC family and look forward to nurturing and educating your children!
