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.
Bachelor of Education (English/Geography/Early Childhood Ed.)
