Hi, my name is Ilana Green and I am an Intermediate (Grade 7) Teacher in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada. I have been teaching for 10+ years and I have always felt that it is important to let students do what they love. I always find that honouring their unique stories adds to the community that we create in the classroom. I am also a complete and total book nerd (see The Book Whisperer tag above), basketball coach and Student Council facilitator. I love my job and the students with whom I am charged. I am thankful each day for what I do.
I have two amazing unique daughters who have both graduated from high school and are working their way through life. I am so proud of both of them. They are both strong and smart and talented and will find success in any challenge they face. They have taught me that we must honour the experiences of our students to be able to help them reach their full potential.
