I was born and raised in the Middle East, but I would consider myself a native of Mississauga, Ontario. I have a Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Specialization in Catholic Studies & Psychology as well as a Bachelor of Education from the University of Western Ontario. For more information, click HERE. This will be my eighth year teaching at JP2. I am thrilled to be teaching grade 7 & 8 Social Studies as well as grade 9 Religion. Feel free to contact me by phone or email.
NOTES: All of my notes are electronic, but they are not posted online. If your child is missing notes, or if you know that they will be missing more than 2 days of school (vacation, illness etc) please let me know and I can email you the notes for that chapter
QUIZLET: this will be a very helpful tool for reviewing information for each unit. Your child can use the APP on their smartphone/tablet, or use the webpage to review flashcards, to play review games, to test their knowledge etc. Instructions for accessing Quizlet can be found on the HW page of your child's class.
GOOGLE CLASSROOM: this is mainly for the students to access their assignment and work on them using templates that have already been created by me. I will usually attach instructions, a marking rubric and examplars to the actual assignment as well as the template they will need to work on & submit.
HOMEWORK SITE: For parents, information on assignments and upcoming tests will be uploaded to this HW site along with due dates & test dates.
REMIND: This is a reminder service that allows me to send a text reminder to students about upcoming events, tests & assignment due dates without sharing phone numbers. The instructions for setting up REMIND on your child’s or your phone can be found on the HW page of your child's class.
