Meet the Teacher!

My name is Diane, and I'm the blogger behind One Teacher's Adventures!

I'm heading into my 6th year of teaching in beautiful Sooke, B.C., Canada.  Sooke is a small town (about 10,000 people) about 40 minutes from downtown Victoria - B.C.'s capital city on Vancouver Island.

I grew up in the Sooke School District, in the city of Colwood, and now many of my former teachers are now colleagues and mentors.  I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Victoria, and did my first student teaching practicum at my elementary school.  It was very strange to walk into the staff room - it still felt like I shouldn't be allowed in there!

I have a lot of interests, and took an extra year of university to take more electives.  As a result, I have taught students from Grade 1 - Grade 11 in every core subject, plus French, AVID, Planning, and Foods!  I am currently teaching at a middle school, and I have found that is where my passion is!  When I tell people I love working in middle school, they usually give me a look of concern or appreciation!

I opened my TpT store in October 2013, when I found it hard to find any good quality FSL resources that weren't way out of my price range! I'm so glad I joined as a seller! In addition to the extra money (which is a perk!), I have met amazing teacher-authors and have found the TpT experience to be so collaborative and energizing.  I am learning so much from the other sellers, bloggers, and buyers!

Make sure to follow me on Facebook! It's the best way to find out about new products, sales, and updates.  I also hold giveaways and promote flash freebies on my Facebook page!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
