I have been teaching in northeastern Alberta since 1994 in the towns of Bonnyville, Iron River, and Cold Lake. I taught Kindergarten for nine years, Gr.1 for four, and four years of Gr. 4.
I believe that students benefit from and desire structure. I have taken Tribes Learning Communities training twice and try very hard to follow the Four Agreements in my classroom, home, and community. I love to put on my Harry Potter glasses or clown nose to surprise the students and to take Brain/Exercise breaks frequently with them.
Nominated for Edwin Parr Excellence in Teaching Award for first year teachers in Alberta, 1995.
Bachelor of Education degree, University of Alberta, 1994.
I love teaching with humour and sharing my love of cooking with my students. :-)
