About Me

 I was born, the youngest of three girls, in Prince George, British Columbia.  My family moved to Drayton Valley shortly after. I lived in Drayton Valley until I was seven.  From Drayton Valley, my family moved to Lloydminster, where I still live.

    I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a major in Special Education.  

    My teaching career began in Chauvin in 1988.  I worked half time at Ribstone Colony with two students, and half time at Chauvin doing enrichment with various classes and supporting a few students. From there I moved to Paradise Valley where I worked as a Special Education teacher until 1999 and moved to the classroom the next year to teach grade five.  In 2000, I moved to Vermilion Elementary where I have since taught grade three, four, five and six, and reading intervention.

    When I graduated from university, I met my husband, Brian.  We have three children, Patrick , Stephanie and Paige. The years after were filled with family gatherings, dance, gymnastics, hockey, basketball, rugby and summers at the cabin.  

     Outside of family and school, I have also served on the board of the Lloydminster Mens’ Shelter for the past 20 years as secretary, treasurer, vice president, president, past president and currently as a director.

    There is an African proverb. “It takes a village to raise a child” which means it takes an entire community of different people interacting with children in order for a child to experience and grow in a safe environment.  

    It is my hope that today and every day that I will help a child feel a sense of significance and belonging.  That I will develop opportunities for them to gain independence and grow in their ability to take responsibility.  I hope to instill in them that showing concern for others and acting out of kindness, without recognition, but for kindness sakes, will raise them to be leaders for the villages of tomorrow.  And through their successes and failures, I hope they will develop a sense of mastery and a confidence to meet problems head on.
