I am Shelley Jones and am a TTOC for SD58 in Merritt. I have not been a TTOC for 13 years so it is interesting to go back into the classroom in this capacity and compare the experience to my first days of teaching as a TOC. My undergrad background is History and Political Science. Not giving my age away but when the French immersion programs were being piloted many years ago I was able to participate in the pilot program. I fell in love with the French language and continued to build my skills throughout the years, it has allowed me to be more marketable. I am a reading interventionist and have a passion for students learning to their full potential. I am excited to be taking this course as I have had experience as a grade 8-10 classroom teacher supporting students during their online core coursework in rural schools. I have seen the pros and cons of online learning and I am always up for the challenge! I have been interested in teaching online for many years but never had the opportunity to do this coursework.
When I am not teaching, my creative outlet is cake decorating, golfing and camping. I recently created a 4ft. 3D model of my husband's Harley Davidson for his birthday.
