Isabelle joined our TBM team in August 2021. She is a registered early childhood educator and joined the Casa 1 team. She grew up in a francophone military household and loves to incorporate French and ASL in my teaching. She moved to Cambridge to follow my husband and sometimes miss the rocky wilderness of northern Ontario, but she has found a number of good spots to satisfy her hiking itch in Kitchener-Waterloo.
Before discovering her passion for early childhood education, she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Forensic Sciences and an Advanced Diploma in Chemical Engineering Technology. While it may seem unrelated, she finds that her job as an educator is akin to research in how she carefully observes the children’s behaviours and interests and develop theories and hypotheses. She has five years of experience in a variety of early childhood environments and a variety of age groups. She has also been fortunate enough to learn and grow with children of different cultural backgrounds and of varying abilities. She is a passionate learner and cannot wait to impart her love of academics through Montessori approaches and materials
