I have called Vancouver, British Columbia my home for the last 11 years, yet I was born and raised in the Transylvanian region of Romania. I currently speak three languages (English, Romanian and German) and am fascinated with the study of cultures and peoples across time and space: History.
My ultimate goal as an educator is to establish strong connections for my students between formal and informal learning environments. This ultimately leads to a learning experience that translates beyond the classroom: it is a lifelong process involving an understanding of our presence in this world, while also making sure our voices are truly valued and heard.
The passion I have for teaching comes both from my family and from working with young learners in daycare settings and outdoor education. Other than being a book lover, I enjoy cycling, exploring and music.
