- Vaughan East and Maple
Teacher & Mentor
Hello, my name is Simona. I obtained my BA with Honours from York University and I am currently completing my Master of Teaching at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. Currently, I am with York Catholic District School Board. During my undergrad, I studied abroad, and received several scholarships for both academic as well as community contributions. My commitment to the community has been recognized with several awards including the City of Vaughan Volunteer Recognition Award and the Top National Student Fundraiser Award from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
For years, educating children has been gratifying providing a sense of accomplishment, fulfillment and joy. I believe that education and the love of learning is the most significant gift that we can pass on to the next generation. My experiences as a teacher and mentor have given me the opportunity to reinforce classroom learning in a unique and personalized approach. I strive to encompass various teaching mediums to ensure that every child, irrespective of their learning preference is set up to succeed. As an educator, my goal is to provide each of my students with the tools to build confidence and achieve their full potential.
