|To utilize my experience in order to capture a learner's interest about science by means of his or her own initiative. I believe it is the realization and awakening of an indwelling curiosity within an individual that motivates him/her toward the subject of science. Topics within science range from life to the inorganic, the depths of the sea to the depths of space, the beginning of time to the indeterminate future. With such a wide array of topics to unveil, it is inevitable that I may spark a learner's interest about science in one aspect or another. Ultimately, my career objective is to be in a position where I may inspire the learner who lies within each one of us.|
High School Diploma - Carlton Comprehensive; Prince Albert SK
Bachelor of Education - University of Regina; Regina, SK
Bachelor of Science - University of Regina; Regina, SK
|My Bachelor of Education was completed in the summer of 2000
with a Chemistry Major/General Science Minor. The following year I completed
my Bachelor of Science with a Major in Chemistry. Once I moved back to
Regina, I took more Physics classes opening the opportunity for
accreditation in that subject as well. I also hope to enter the Masters
program in Education soon. Although I am not enrolled in any classes at
present, I believe education is a never-ending process. Each new day offers
another opportunity to learn.
I am now accredited in Chemistry and Physics within the province of Saskatchewan.
|I have coached several minor league soccer teams in both Regina and Prince Albert. Responsibilities required of a coach include: the ability to establish self-confidence of individuals on a team, aiding in the development and refinement of specific skills, providing direction so team members may set goals, and implementing strategies that will lead to the achievement of those goals.|
