Congratulations to our iPad draw winner!

iPad WinnerCongratulations to our online survey draw winner of an iPad mini, Annette Te Stroete from British Columbia.

Here’s what Annette had to say about her teaching journey:

“My third grade teacher inspired me to be a teacher and after completing my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of the Fraser Valley in 2008 and my Bachelor of Education degree at Simon Fraser University in 2011, it became a reality. I was hired on in the North Vancouver School District as a Teacher Teaching On Call in 2012. During this time, I completed the Integrating Technology into a Digital Age graduate diploma at Simon Fraser University because technology is one of my passions and I see its potential to engage and inspire students. After two and a half years of teaching on call, I was offered my first contract teaching a challenging Grade 6/7 class and now I have a continuing contract as a Grade 7 teacher at Queen Mary Community Elementary, an authorized International Baccalaureate World School. My goal is to ladder my graduate diploma into a Masters of Education in Educational Practice in the coming year. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, hiking, and reading.”

We wish you all the best in your future professional endeavours, Annette.
