Lorna has recently completed her Master of Teaching at OISE with a specialization in Primary/Junior Her research focuses on literacy achievement in the elementary years with family involvement.
Through Early Childhood Studies, Lorna has been active in the child care community, working with young children in the preschool years up to senior elementary. Her volunteer work at the Royal Ontario Museum has given her opportunities to facilitate small and large group interactions with artefacts and history lessons. These experiences have furthered her belief that in order to learn, the lessons must be meaningful and relevant.
Lorna has participated in several professional development workshops, including Full Day Kindergarten training, Bullying prevention and technological awareness conference, TRIBES community building (incorporating social skills into academic learning), and is currently enrolled to begin Special Education part 1. Lorna currently volunteers with 1st and 2nd graders in Peel, implementing literacy lessons, and providing small group support as needed.
Lorna is enthusiastic and believes that by creating lessons that are rooted in research and designed to be meaningful and enjoyable to the learner, students will have great opportunity to flourish and reach new personal bests.
