Rose is completing her final year in McGill University’s Bachelor of Education program, specializing in secondary school English Language Arts and Ethics and Religious Culture. She is excited to be continuing her studies in Fall 2021 at the University of Toronto in the M.A. Social Justice Education program. Throughout Rose’s time at McGill, she has both excelled academically and demonstrated exemplary extracurricular involvement in the McGill community. She currently holds a 3.9 GPA, and has received numerous scholarships throughout her undergraduate career honouring both her academic achievements and her commitment to extracurricular leadership. Rose has experience working with youth both inside and outside of the classroom. This experience includes the knowledge that she has garnered over her past four student teaching internships at various schools in the Montreal area, and her previous work as a substitute teacher. Furthermore, Rose’s involvement with children extends outside of the classroom through her experiences coaching sports teams, leading canoe trips, and volunteering with the student council programs at her various host schools. Rose sees learning as a multifaceted process, influenced by a variety of factors such as the relevance of the material to the student’s life, the student’s self-efficacy and self-concept, and the nature of the learning environment. In order to facilitate student learning, Rose sets out to form strong, individualized bonds with her students that allow her to cater their learning experiences to their own unique needs and abilities. Forming personal connections with each student ensures that they feel cared for and supported in their learning, while fostering a sense of self-confidence and motivation to reach their full potential. Rose uses her own demonstrated confidence in her students’ abilities to bolster their own self-confidence so that they may begin to seek out more challenging tasks that further enhance their knowledge of the concepts being taught.
