Having graduated from The University of Saskatchewan in 2021, I have been working in Saskatoon as a substitute teacher and private tutor.
Math and science have always piqued my curiosity since a young age. The puzzles, steps, tools, and logic that goes behind solving questions about our world around us. Or, even just solving a simple problem in day-to-day life.
In 2021 I graduated with a Bachelors of Education from The University of Saskatchewan. My goal, as an educator, is to make sure that everyone feels comfortable in their learning setting, without judgment or fear of making 'mistakes'(also known as, learning opportunities). Math and science education are not about following formulas and making sure to know all of the steps. They're about curiosity, collaboration, and leaps of faith towards a common goal.
Math and science are much more than algorithms, or a means to an answer! Teaching students that there is creativity and excitement within equations and theories, and allowing them to use those skills in their learning makes it their own.

COMMUNITY AND COLLABORATION
Having a strong classroom community is important in fostering students' efficacy and allowing them to feel that they can make mistakes and be messy in their learning.
Having students working together and developing relationships with their peers while maintaining an encouraging environment allows for them to take risks and understand that learning does not have to be a solo endeavor.
