Hello everyone, I am Amberlee. I am 18 years old. I am from a small town in southeast Saskatchewan called Corning. I live on a farm with 350 head of cattle and I enjoy spending my free time out and about on the farm. I am the oldest child of three I have one brother and one sister.
I went to Kipling school and graduated in June of 2019! I graduated being an honour roll student. I was an active member during my school life. I was a part of various teams and clubs such as volleyball, track and field, and the Student Leadership Council (SLC). I was the co-president for the SLC in my grade 12 year. I also did some out of school activities such as playing hockey and being a member of the Kennedy 4-H Beef Club.
I am working currently working toward earning a degree in Elementary Education at the University of Regina. I can’t wait to share my journey with you through this portfolio!
The choice in choosing a career was easy to me. I had wanted to be a teacher since I was very young. Over the years I had collected a few experiences that ensure education was my passion. Such as job shadowing in an elementary classroom in my grade 10 year and working at the local daycare in grade 11 and 12.
The part of the program I am most looking forward to is learning how to create lessons plans and also how to create a learning environment desired by students. In the ECS program I am most excited for the field experience. There are two reasons for this one being that it is hands on and the second one is being able to experience a larger scale classroom. I am a very hand on and active learning, so I am very happy that this program allows us to get into the classroom so soon!
