This is my fifth year teaching at Oriole Park, and I love it here! I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Elementary Education degree in 2010. In my first year I had the incredible honour of being the Zone 4 Edwin Parr Award recipient for Excellence in First Year Teaching. I adore my job, and cannot imagine doing anything other than teaching. The passion I have for my students and all the learning we get to do, sends me on adrenaline rushes whenever I think about it!
Outside of teaching, I have a huge love of travel. My husband and I are constantly planning and making note of where we will be off to next. Travel is all about learning and immersing yourself in something new. I try to bring this desire to learn and grow into my classroom for all my students.
Having a strong education enables you to have choices in life. It opens you up to possibilities and gives you the ability to pursue them. I hope this comes true for all my students in whatever they choose to do.
