I have just arrived in Yokohama from Singapore where I lived for 7 years. Yokohama is a beautiful city and I am enjoying exploring the city parks are lovely areas in my new neighbourhood. I am here with my husband and daughter and we are having fun setting up our new home and getting to know our new city and surrounding areas.
I am originally from Canada, British Columbia where I began teaching more than 9 years ago. After teaching a few few years in middle school, I became an elementary teacher. I feel very fortunate for the opportunity to work with the students during their elementary years. It is an exciting time for both teachers and students where inquiry and concept driven learning fits so naturally with way children at this age engage in new experience and develop their understanding of the world around them. It never ceases to amaze me how capable these young people are and how much I learn from them, as well.
Just as students’ interests drive their learning, I know that the experiences I value influence my classroom and students. I am so looking forward to finding our what those areas of of interest are for the students of 2M and to sharing my love for learning and new experiences with them.
