My name is Marissa and I am currently completing my Bachelor of Education After-Degree (Middle Years).  I have a previous Bachelor of Arts, concentration in both Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies.  This blog is to serve the purpose of pre-service teaching experiences, professional development, course requirements and education, and reflections/personal insight on education in general.

I completed both my pre-internship and internship placements in Regina, SK and have loved every minute!  


A few snippets about me:

  • I love to read – most of my book collection consists of memoirs and autobiographies.  A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah is one of my favourites.  The truly saddening and heartbreaking story of a child soldier in Sierra Leone is not a book I would recommend to everyone, however the words of Ishmael Beah have given a voice to children of war who have otherwise been silenced.
  • I am an avid traveller – I love to visit places around the world as a way of understanding and experiencing different cultures.  I have travelled to Europe, Hawaii (twice), Mexico (multiple times), Dominican Republic, many American states, and to some beautiful spots in CANADA!  Banff, Alberta is one of my favourites.
  • Along with travelling, I love to hike.  Enjoying nature can be a very enjoyable and peaceful experience.
