EDUCATION CENTENNIAL HIGH SCHOOL, CALGARY


I graduated from Centennial in 2013 where my studies included advanced placement
English.

am doing my third professional semester in the Faculty of Education.

COMMUNICATION I danced for about seven years and worked in two high school drama
productions and these experiences taught me the value of teamwork,
commitment, and what it is like to be depended on. As an aspiring English
teacher I feel that I understand the importance of knowing the proper
rhetoric to use in various situations. Throughout my practicums I have
learned to take criticism and apply it to future tasks. In my practicums I
excelled at being adaptable and reflecting on how I can be a better teacher.

AVAILABILITY I am ready to take any teaching position as soon as I am finished my


practicum on April 27th.
