I graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Science degree concurrent with a Bachelor of Education degree in 2018. I have worked in the Calgary Board of Education as a substitute teacher for a year, hence I have had the opportunity to meet and work with students of differing skill sets. This has allowed me to better differentiate my teaching techniques and to incorporate new approaches to concepts mandated by the Alberta curriculum. I believe education is a means to allow students to develop transferable skills, hence I focus strongly on fundamental skills before building on new concepts. As well, I hope to provide encouragement for students to develop resiliency, as they learn coping mechanisms that will allow them to succeed in other aspects of life. This stems from the understanding that students are unique and they each have their learning methods; it is important to work with the material provided by the student's teacher at school so they find success in class. My summers are spent at the Minds in Motion summer camps, were we engage children and youth in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) related activities. I have had the opportunity to build with Lego Mindstorms, use TinkerCad and Scratch, encountered various professionals in various fields and performed cool science experiments (such as exploding watermelons while talking about pressure and making 'elephants toothpaste'). I speak fluent Cantonese; English is my second language, hence I understand the difficulties of learning a new language while learning new concepts.
