M.C. has taught since 1984 at the elementary level. March 11, 2016 she retired from teaching full day kindergarten in Hamilton, Ontario and moved to Victoria, BC where she spends her time writing, engages in various art mediums and of course spreading joy as Fairy Dazzle. She has also owned a craft business, bed and breakfast, and worked extensively in her community as a volunteer. As a trained Toastmaster with her CTM designation, and trained in Glasser’s Choice Theory, she enjoys speaking on topics which inspire personal growth. Together with her performance artistry, talent for poetic metaphor, she is on a mission to promote servant leadership, living passionately, and infusing life with fun. She spends her spare time researching and writing on these topics. “It is important that we don’t take ourselves too seriously and maintain our sense of humility.” In addition, her passion has lead her to writing poetry and children’s stories on themes of compassion, values, relationships and awestruck wonder.
MC’s Site Intro Video
Fairies are known to be the guardian angels of the earth and animals. Fairy Dazzle, (a retired kindergarten teacher), believes that the wee folk are also protectors and ‘besties’ of children. Through her metaphorical performance artistry and writing, Fairy Dazzle is committed to playfully challenging people to laugh, walk in faithful optimism, and let go of the trappings of the web-weaving ego.
