About me

schooledbypayne, HidingAs a learner, leader, nerd, techie, media junkie and bookworm, I love collaborating with students and colleagues in my work as an elementary teacher in Toronto, Canada.  In 2016-17 I will be teaching a combined grade 5/6 French Immersion class.

In recent years I’ve been working as a professional learning leader for teachers in my school district, and have found that many of the same strategies and techniques that help students learn and succeed are paying off for teachers too! I’m committed to teacher and student agency, learning for all, play and exploration in education. I love problem-solving and finding ways to leverage technology to showcase the skills and creativity of everyone I work with.

When I’m not working, I can usually be found whipping up a delicious mess in my kitchen or hanging out in nature with my partner and my dog.
