HELLO! I’M DANIELLE GAUTHIER

Welcome to my e-portfolio

Welcome and thanks for visiting my site! I invite you to take a moment and look around.

 

WHO I AM AND MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Originally born and raised in Edmonton. AB, I moved to Calgary to complete my first degree in a Bachelor of Arts with a dance major at the University of Calgary. I then pursued a career in Out of School care at Topp Kids beginning my journey as an educator. In 2020 Danielle started her Bachelor of Education with a specialization of Elementary Mathematics. I have a deep passion for nurturing and helping young minds grow. 


I believe in creating a safe environment where all students can collaborate together, feel confident and achieve their goals.  I treat all students with the same respect. I aspire to teach not only the curriculum but also foster a strong work ethic, respect, ambition, and goal orientation.  My largest desire is to create and nurture a love of learning and to maintain an environment that allows and encourages questions and exploration. Being an important role model in a child’s life, I find the importance of demonstrating structure by being punctual, prepared, and well-spoken.

DESIGNING FOR LEARNING - FIELD III

SOCIAL STUDIES DEBATE

In this lesson, Grade 4 students had their first debate ever. Students were given different statement prompts about Barnum Brown and Black Foot people's perspectives. Students had to either agree, disagree or sit on the fence for each statement. I later did a second debate with the students about fossil fuels and used my reflection to improve the second debate.

SCIENCE - LIGHT AND SHADOWS

In the first lesson, students learned that the sun moves during the day which affects the size and length of shadows. In the second lesson, they learned the difference between opaque, translucent, and transparent objects and tested different objects in the classroom as an experiment.

DESIGNING FOR LEARNING - FIELD IV

SOCIAL STUDIES CHAPTER 6 UNIT PLAN

In this Unit Plan, students learned about settlers coming to Canada after The Fur Trade had ended. I used the Voices of Alberta textbook and the Under One Sun literacy resource alongside videos and digital activities. We ended this unit with a video project where students made a mock interview pretending to be John A Macdonald or Chief Crowfoot. 

MINI DANCE UNIT PLAN

During my Field IV experience, I got to teach physical education 1 to 2 times a week. During the last three weeks, I decided to use that time to create and teach a mini dance unit. The students got to experience the fundamentals of locomotion, hip-hop grooving, ballet, swing dance, and a bit of improvisation.

WHAT DOES SELF-CARE MEAN TO ME?

To me, self-care is all about creating balance in regard to nutrition, between work life and home life, and between all of my priorities.
