I am currently a student in the Four Year Elementary Education program at the University of Victoria. I love this program and all the opportunities it provides me with. I have volunteered as an English Language teaching assistant, a Big Buddy for students suffering from learning challenges and as a sports coach for children aged 3-10. I love having the ability to teach young children a new concept or skill. These experiences have taught me that students look to teachers as role models and that it is my responsibility as a future teacher to become someone that my younger self would have looked up to.
