"My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world."
- Jack Layton
I believe that Health is the greatest possession we have. In running my life with this belief, I am happier, stronger and more confident. Fitness and Nutrition are at the heart of everything else. I am a Mother, Wife, Teacher, Friend and.....I am a VEGAN RUNNER.
My initiatives at the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board and across the world have taught me that 21st Century learning is about modeling and using the most current tools, understanding how to access and moderate information, resources and technologies – and particularly using networking and collaboration to grow ourselves.
To understand <and change> the world around us we need to first look within and understand ourselves.
My passion and advocacy for the arts and technology in education gives me strength and has made it effortless to differentiate instruction and use innovative teaching methods to engage all my learners to be active citizens and engage in their community.
~ As learners ourselves, we need to leverage the power of technology to extend the scope of our influence beyond the confines of our communities, homes, schools and district. With a global perspective, we can begin to truely understand the world around us, recognize social justice and know when to stand up for ourselves and others.
