Welcome to Our Canadian DEN STAR Community!

My name is Lindsey Carleton and I am a sixth grade teacher at Barnhill Memorial School in Saint John, New Brunswick. I primarily teach Language Arts which is the area in which I completed my education degree. I LOVE reading and I enjoy bringing that passion in to the classroom in order to encourage students to love reading, as well.

In my spare time I love to play with my husband and our 14-month-old daughter Madi. We have a lot of fun together and it’s so fun to teach her new things and watch her grow and learn. As I mentioned above, I also love to read books – especially on the new e-reader I got for Christmas.

I’ve been using many of the Discovery Education videos in my classroom to bring a little excitement to my lessons. So far we have viewed videos on fables, newspaper articles as well as the fur trade. I look forward to expanding my familiarity with Discovery Education in the future and making the most use of it possible in my classroom.

    Welcome Lindsey! I’m a Gr. 5/6 teacher in Saskatchewan. Perhaps we can have our students connect on Edmodo, or with Skype’s beta of Skype in the Classroom. Being a STAR is amazing! Have fun using all of the resources available to you.
