Ms. Gorham

I am a Student Support Teacher in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. I received my Bachelor of Education degree and Certificate of Extended Studies in Inclusive Education from the University of Regina. My long term goal is to become an Educational Psychologist and I am currently enrolled in the Masters of Educational Psychology Program at the University of Regina. In my spare time, I coach elementary girl’s basketball, sit on the Moose Jaw Special Olympics Community Executive, and coach Special Olympics Active Start and Fundamentals programs. I have had the opportunity to volunteer with Campus for All, work as an Autism Interventionist, and work as a Senior Counselor at Camp Easter Seal, Saskatchewan. Through these endeavors I continue to learn about those with varying abilities, differentiated instruction, and inclusive environments. My professional interests include working with students of all abilities, teaching early literacy, and equipping learners with self-regulation and emotional intelligence. My hobbies include reading, going to plays with my drama teaching husband, playing with my cat, and testing my limits at spin class.

I would like to thank everyone who has been part of my lifelong journey to becoming and being an educator. “A teacher affects eternity; she can never tell where her influence stops” – Henry Adams. I am thankful for those in my life, especially my family, who support and believe in me to fulfill the important role we call teaching!

Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to connecting with you!

Sight Word Easter Egg Hunt

I’m not sure who loves game-based literacy activities more – me or the kiddos! Today we enjoyed hunting for Easter eggs with sight words inside. Each student was assigned a colour so that everyone would get a chance to find eggs. Assigning colours also allowed me to put specific words inside each egg to target each of their needs. Once they read me the word I replaced the plastic egg with gum, chocolate, and candy-filled eggs. It was a win-win for all involved!

Smiling faces after the sight word Easter egg hunt!
