“I believe that every student should have an enjoyable student and residential life experience which will be memorable in the lives of every student that has entered the doors of J. Addison School. The reason why I am so involved in the student and residential life of J. Addison School is because I am passionate about youth involvement and empowerment. To have the opportunity to bring forth a ton of ideas to the student body, marketing campaigns, implement various programs and excursions, makes myself feel honored and truly bless. Every time I wake up, I wake with a sense of pride, looking forward to seeing my students and J. Addison School family. To see the smiles on the student faces that they are enjoying their student experience at J. Addison makes my life mission not go in vain. I have the power to influence and shape student lives through a variety of ideas while they are walking on the PATHWAY TO SUCCESS...I think that’s pretty awesome!!!!"

English Language & History Teacher
 

“I believe that education of the english language should be one that evokes passion to our students through a variety of teaching ideas. It can be having students work in group to create a play on a certain subject or through poetry. I personally believe that when you are passionate about something, it will exude and have a profound effect on students which leads them on the PATHWAY TO SUCCESS.”

Montessori Director 
 

“I believe that the best teaching experience is one where students can draw inferences from life experiences to the classroom. When a 3 year old boy tells myself about his weekend trip to Montreal with complete statements and ideas. It brings a sense of joy to my eyes, because that student is expressing himself in a self-assured way. I employ other teachers, to give students the power to express themselves with their voice in the classroom on any topic that is being taught. Let them used life experiences to draw inferences. When we as teachers do that, then the student gains a greater understanding of society and that is a life-lesson that one never stops learning while walking on the PATHWAY TO SUCCESS.”

Law, Family Studies & World Issues Teacher
 

“Teaching is not just standing in front of a class and regurgitating information, the idea of teaching for myself is creating a spark of interest in every student that I encounter through a wide range of innovative teaching strategies. It can be hip hop music, drama, speech and most of all, debates. The same teacher who inspired me as a child is my mantra to be an inspiration for my current students, inside and outside of the classroom which will hopefully make a difference for them as they embark on the PATHWAY TO SUCCESS."

Ms. D. Morson, B. Kin.,  B. Ed., OCT
English as Second Language Teacher

 
 

“As an ESL Teacher, I have to bring forth an innovative teaching style that is structured around student presentation skills.  I truly believe that public speaking allows students to build inner and outer confidence in their language acquisition skills.  Presentations are one of the key components of university academic life, hence its so important to stress the emphasis on oral communication within the classroom. The most rewarding experience at J. Addison School is seeing  the students everyday build their self confidence in the english language and smile when they complete their presentation. It's like a sigh of relief.  Personally I sense that for the students that study english as a second language, it is a sense of accomplishment overcoming one of the many language acquistionhurdles. If I can help a student get over a hurdle in their life, then indeed I am leading them on the PATHWAY TO SUCCESS.”
