Welcome to Grades 5–8 – Lower Secondary School!
As the AQC, I have a complete overview of the students’ academics in grades 5–8 (lower secondary school). I enjoy being able to witness students learning in action in a variety of settings. Collaborating with staff on how to create engaging learning experiences and talking with parents about how to support their child’s learning and development are at least two more reasons why I look forward to coming to work each day.
My goal is to aid teachers in teaching students the skills to be independent, critical thinkers as well as thoughtful individuals who take part in personal reflection on the cultures and world around them. I believe that as teachers we are responsible for developing responsible world citizens who are confident in using their skills to tackle the predicaments of the future.
I strive to foster an active learning community where students work together, respect one another’s opinions, and listen to each other’s perspectives. As an administrator I see myself working with educators to help them guide instruction in a variety of ways, ranging from whole class, direct instruction and discussions when appropriate to guiding individual student learning in groups based on skill and/or interests.
What I’m really looking forward to is seeing the wonderful individuals our students turn into while they are at ISR (and afterwards).
