“What Makes Us Tick”
I am Tobi Blue, grade one teacher at Christ Church Cathedral School (CCCS) and Assistant Head. I have worked at this school for 12 rewarding years. Not only do I enjoy collaborating and working with our teachers and staff, but I also love teaching my wonderful grade one class. It’s exciting because we can facilitate their learning through the SMART boards and extensive technology we offer our children in this great school. This is a crucial age group to expose our learners to as many educational opportunities as possible and reach each child’s individual needs. Striving to differentiate the learning each day for every child is a large order, but it is a necessity that happens each and every day in our classrooms at Cathedral School! We find using a variety of approaches to learning every day integrating the iPad, SMART board, Response Clickers and good ol’ fashioned conventional learning activities can reach all of our learners and help them master their skills while having a little bit of fun too!
This is a fabulous educational facility for students and a wonderful inviting place to work as a teacher! Like a fine watch made with precision this place is always ‘ticking’ along. I am so blessed to be a part of this community. The staff at Cathedral School are incredible educators. I feel very fortunate to work with each person on our staff. Everyone brings great strengths to the school and we all work very well as a team; we are a well-balanced, talented group of caring teachers. The students at the school are also very caring. They are always so welcoming, polite and very eager to learn, a superior quality in our student body. So it’s no surprise, the parents at our school are wonderful too; everyone is supportive, open to suggestions and always around to lend a hand. After all, our parents are our learning partners. So, do you really need to ask? This is an educator’s dream place to work! This place ‘ticks’ all the boxes and, like a watch, is always moving, changing and keeping pace with our outside world! It just ‘ticks’! From my perspective this is the place to be, as a teacher, as a student and as a parent. Please drop by and come visit our school and be sure to say “hello” in grade one!
