Meet Mrs. Cantin!
Mrs. Cantin is a first grade teacher at Nixon School and has taught first grade for eight years! This year she is teaching an in-person cohort A and a remote cohort B class. She has two Master's degrees, one in Elementary Education and the other in Literacy and Language. She says:
"Teaching first grade is fantastic for so many reasons! One reason, is because I love watching first graders grow their confidence and belief in themselves as learners and friends."
Mrs. Cantin grew up in our town of Sudbury and now lives in Harvard with her husband Geoff, and daughters Vera (8), Dylan (4) and Sadie (4). She has two Bulldogs, Bosco and Rosie.
She loves to read. Oliver Jeffers is a writer and illustrator that she enjoys exploring with students. He illustrated 'The Day the Crayons Quit.' She believes that:
"Teaching students through books provides multiple opportunities for them to experience the world, different points of view, and create empathy."
She loves being by the water whether it is swimming, pontoon boating, or fishing. Check out that giant Striper she caught! She also loves to play board-games and eat popcorn!
She always projects a sense of calmness in her classroom and encourages her students to learn along with her as she faces new challenges in a diverse learning environment. Mrs. Cantin is an amazing asset to our school! The next time you see her, please extend a thank you for the hard work she does!
