Marjorie LaFrance

Marjorie LaFrance
Marjorie completed a Bachelor of Arts followed by a Bachelor of Education degree in Canada, her home country. There, she taught for a number of years in two different provinces before moving to Singapore in search of a new adventure. During her previous teaching positions she focused on inquiry-based learning, teaching strategies for learners with English as a second language, as well as French second language studies.

Marjorie believes that teaching is about helping students learn how to learn, and that by making mistakes we can build resilience and come out stronger and smarter than ever before. She has been heavily influenced by educational ideas such as the Growth Mindset (Carol Dweck), The Habits of Mind (Costa and Kallick), and the mathematically educational genius of John A. Van de Walle (Making Math Meaningful).

Before beginning at Middleton International School, Marjorie spent some time exploring Canada and Southeast Asia. She is very happy to have taken off her figurative backpack and rejoined the teaching community here in Singapore. In her free time she enjoys painting, yoga, and playing Ultimate Frisbee.
