About Me

Understanding what drives and motivates people, how they think, how they learn, how they evolve, drives me. I find inspiration and creativity in my work through an eclectic mix of media ranging from comic books and novels to twitter and I-pads. Educating all students in a rapidly changing world requires tenacity, empathy and a willingness to try and fail and try again. I feel privileged to be a teacher, am passionate about the work I do and constantly seek to improve.

Please contact me if you want to be part of a shift in education that focuses on working with students to foster grit and determination, creativity and character. I look forward to engaging in meaningful dialogue that benefits the next generations. Follow me on Twitter @dsiertse or email me at dsiertse@hwdsb.on.ca.
