I have been a Visual Arts teacher for 14 years, as well as the Department Head of the Arts in my high school for the past 3 years. Through my work as the Chair of the K-12 Arts Curriculum Steering Committee in my province, I have been creating art, dance and drama projects for the elementary or middle school stream for 5 years. I have been creating high school Visual Arts projects for my own classroom for the last 14 years.
I practice a student autonomy, constructivist style of teaching for learning.
Department Head of the Arts in my high school. Chair of the K-12 Arts Curriculum Steering Committee. 2012 YMCA-YWCA Woman of Distinction Award in the Arts category.
School of Art, University of Manitoba. Faculty of Education, University of Manitoba for Bachelors, Post Baccalaureate and Masters degrees.
I have a passion for helping students find enrichment in their lives through the arts. I love to teach, to read, to listen to music, and spend time with my husband and daughter.
