Desiree Munien

Grade 4 Teacher

My approach to teaching is centered around creating a safe and nurturing environment where every child is acknowledged and validated, and where their opinions and thoughts are welcomed and respected. I believe in empowering my students by encouraging them to express themselves freely and authentically. Teaching at Canterbury allows me to bring my approach to life. The school’s vision of tapping into our childrens’ potential and making them believe in themselves, aligns with my teaching philosophy. I see the effort and love that is poured into each child, and the confidence students have to express themselves. This makes me proud (and blessed) to be a part of the Canterbury family.
