Deanne grew up in Richmond and enjoys the beauty of this province. She loves road trips throughout BC, visiting her family in the north and on the island, while squeezing in hikes, camping and other outdoor adventures along the way! Deanne joined BrainBoost in the winter of 2015, and is excited to teach K-10 Science, Math, Social Sciences and English/Language Arts. A lifelong learner herself, she is always finding new areas of interest to explore and further understand. This year, she is completing her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certification – a deeper step into a personal practice that began more than a decade ago! Deanne has a Bachelor in Education from UBC and the Primary Teacher Training with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) in her bag. Deanne loves the Montessori philosophy and brings the core elements into her work as a coach and mentor. Basing her work on children’s natural development, Deanne invites students to work towards their own optimal potential. When she’s not learning herself, Deanne enjoys yoga, hiking, discovering healthy new recipes, and sharing authentic conversation with the people she is lucky to meet.
