About Me

I've wanted to teach since I was in Kindergarten. I've been a teacher since 2006 and I still love it. If I ever don't love it, I'm going to quit and open a costume shop. Between now and then, I'm looking forward to teaching more art and science.

I have a big family with two brothers and two sisters. My mom paints and one of my sisters makes jewelry. My little brother and littlest sister are nerdy so we watch Sherlock and Dr. Who together. My older brother, along with his wife and son, live in Red Deer. When my whole family gets together we play board games.

I spend most of my time making things, planning things and hanging out with family and friends.

I teach Grade 6 Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Grade 6-8 Art at Glendale Science and Technology School. I completed my Fine Arts Diploma at Red Deer College, my Education Degree through University of Alberta and my Masters in Art Education through University of Victoria.
