I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I was not the student who ‘fit in the box’ of our education system. I discovered that I needed flexibility, the ability to move and to feel valued as a learner. During high school, two teachers did this for me. It was then that I realized my true intelligence and began to excel. My teaching career began in 1999 teaching in Belize, Central America. I am a passionate life-long learner who believes in empowering children with a voice to advocate for themselves and get invested in their learning. I have a B.Ed. and M.Ed. in literacy. Opening AIM KW School has been a long-time dream come true. I am passionate about implementing solid philosophies and taking education to the next level for the future.
