I believe in an education system where teachers are enthusiastic and motivated and where students are eager and engaged.
Idealistic? For sure. Unattainable? Well that’s where this blog comes in handy – it acts as a hub of valuable education resources for teachers and anyone interested in helping others learn. I found there was a need for more online resources devoted to reviews, practices, and applications to motivate lifelong learners. Edureach101 attempts to fill that gap.
I have an honours B.A. from University of Toronto (history and urban planning), B.Ed, and a M.A. from York University. Starting in the financial industry working at a bank, I quickly found that my favorite parts was teaching clients about their products and services. I then went on a humanitarian mission to teach and build a school in Maasai Mara, Kenya, and that cemented my new aspiration. The impact I had on the community was grossly rewarding, and I then decided to enter the world of education. I made many friends and learned valuable lessons in the financial industry, but found a higher sense of satisfaction helping students become lifelong learners.
Teaching in the Toronto Catholic District School Board allows me to foster my passion to motivate students to love learning. I use my skills learned from different industries to inform my teaching practice to create an inclusive and productive student environment. Rich learning experiences can occur in any context, and everyday I have the opportunity to make that happen.
