About Me

This is my first year at Glendale Sciences and Technology School, where I am teaching grade 5.  I am excited to embark on a new challenge with a new school and grade.  Also, I am very fortunate to assist Mrs. Wowk with her Imagine Club with grades 5 - 8, which is every Wednesday afterschool.

Previoulsy, I had taught for ten years at Central Middle School, where I began my career in the Strategies program.  This was a program where students with Learning Disabilities received specialized support in Language Arts and Mathematics. After the district change into inclusive education, I then became a Learning Assistance Teacher, where I had the opportunity to work with teachers and students to create more efficacy throughout CMS.

Finally, I was very fortunate to fulfill the role of English Second Language Coordinator for Red Deer Public School District.  The positon allowed me to meet many of the new families and students, who entered Canada, to ensure they had a positive, succesful school experience.
