I have been a Primary Teacher for over 25 years and have taught in both public and private schools. I also spent a year teaching English in Japan. I am currently teaching Kindergarten part-time at Heritage Christian School in Kelowna, BC.
I enjoy teaching from a combined Phonics and Whole Language approach. In our classroom we love to integrate our work with singing, creative movement, art, play and hands-on exploration.
Songwriting is one of my passions and I love to weave music into all areas of the curriculum. My Album, In the Light, was chosen as one of 5 nominees for "Children's Album of the Year" at the Gospel Music Association of Canada's 2015 Covenant Awards. My book, Rhythms and Rhymes for Alphabet Times was awarded Honorable Mention for Children's Fiction in the Writer's Digest 74th Annual Writing Competition.
