Required biography

Has taught for the Greater Essex County DSB since 2002. Professional experience spans over 20 years and includes teaching preschool, working as an educational assistant, Special Education and early years teacher. Commitment to education led to completion of an M.Ed. with an emphasis on early intervention and Special Education.

Has served as a member and vice-chair of the board of the Learning Disabilities Association of Windsor-Essex County, is a member of the International Dyslexia Association and sat on the Windsor-Essex Catholic DSB’s Special Education advisory committee.

The duty of the College and Council is to protect the public interest. Council members collaborate, learn and grow together to ensure that public confidence in the profession continues growing. Council makes recommendations to ensure that teachers receive the best training for their own and their students’ futures, and updates and develops AQ courses. Safeguarding students’ best interests, safety and protection and looking at new ways to keep members and the public informed about new initiatives are other responsibilities of the College and Council. These are a few of the many duties of the College and Council members and she looks forward to delving further into this role.

Optional biography

My teaching career began in the Special Education classroom where I quickly discovered that not all students fit the typical mold. My initial interest in researched-based intervention for at-risk students began when traditional instructional methods did not seem to work for some students. I co-ordinated an action research project with my board that looked at the efficacy of response to intervention. The success of this project was only the beginning of many years of research. I have facilitated numerous in-service workshops for occasional teachers in the area of Special Education and continue to advocate and empower parents, teachers and students. In my ongoing pursuit of professional knowledge and skills I recently completed training at the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education in the Orton Gillingham Approach for struggling readers and writers.
