Experience:
20 years of Teaching and Educational Consulting
From 1988 to 2002, I was the primary owner and director of the Hobberlin Museum a hands-on children’s science museum that had been contracted to the Toronto school board since 1975. I designed and implemented educational programs for grades JK to 12 in the fields of Math, Science, Social Studies, History, and Geography. The programs strictly adhered to the guidelines of the Ontario Ministry of Education and so I became very familiar with the changing curriculum for all grade levels.
Freelance Educational Editor
For many years I have used my extensive knowledge of the Ontario Curriculum, my 20 years of experience teaching all grade levels, and my strong Math, Science, and Social Studies background, to become a successful freelance educational editor. As such, my focus has been textbooks for school and higher education, as well as some educational trade materials. My experience in the educational community and the years spent consulting for several school boards, made working with textbooks a logical fit. As an educator, I view the document from the perspective of the reader and ensure that the material is clear, audience and grade appropriate, curriculum-based, and correct both linguistically and factually. I have experience in copyediting as well as in developmental and substantive editing.
