"Life doesn't require that we be the BEST, only that we TRY our best. H. Jackson Brown Jr.
My name is Mrs. Badgley. Teaching is my passion. Guiding students on their educational journey is a very rewarding experience. I feel so blessed to be able to help students work toward their potential and become life long learners. I believe that each child is an unique individual who needs a secure, caring, stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and develop, I believe this involves fostering students enthusiasm through inquiry learning, inspiring their creativity through self guided activities and promoting conceptual understanding by engaging students in hands-on active learning. My teaching involves incorporating students' needs, learning styles, interests, and personalities in daily activities.
My teaching career began in Vancouver, where I taught for 9 years at the elementary school level, then our family moved to Langley, where I have taught for 10 years. I have been fortunate to have worked with students in Kindergarten to grade 7 over my teaching career, but my specialty is at the grade 4- 6 level.
