I am fortunate to have had the chance to work with children in a variety of settings. It has been my privilege to have worked as a summer camp leader at the University of Victoria’s Track and Field Camp for the past six summers, the first two years as a junior leader and the following four years as a senior leader. My experience as a summer camp leader/track coach has equipped me with many skills that are transferrable to teaching including communication, collaboration, patience, organization, and confidence. I have also been the head coach of three youth sports teams at two schools: a grade 8 girls basketball team, a grade 8 boys basketball team, and a grade 6 boys volleyball team. I am thankful for the opportunity to share my passion for sports and active living with so many children.
