About Me

I have been teaching for 22 years. My first 11 years was junior high ELA, Social, and Drama at F P Walshe in Fort Macleod. I transferred to J T Foster in 2006 to teach senior high ELA, Social and Drama. I have since returned to my roots in junior high and have expanded to teaching Fitness and Film Studies.

My husband and I are avid hikers and spend most of our time somewhere in the mountains. My favorite hikes were to Mt Everest in Nepal, and Machu Picchu in Peru. Our next adventure will hopefully be to Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, but that won't be for another couple of years. We also love to travel. My bucket list dream is to have been to every continent - I only have Antarctica and Australia to go.

My passion is Broadway and I plan on visiting New York to see a more plays. My home time hobby is gardening. I am always look forward to having my hands in the dirt over the summer and of course reading.  I just finished Lucky Man by Michael J. Fox and have started Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds.

I am relaxing after completing my MEd with a Specialization in Literacy. It was a busy two years, and I plan on sharing this wealth of knowledge with my students and staff.
