In 1995 I earned my Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta, in the fall I began my teaching career teaching Science courses in the Self-Directed Learning program at HJ Cody School in Sylvan Lake Alberta. The following year I moved to WM E Hay High School in Stettler, Alberta where I taught General Sciences and Biology courses. In 2000, I took a position in the Science Department at Lindsay Thurber, teaching General Science and Chemistry courses. In 2001, I completed a Master of Education degree in Administration from the University of Lethbridge. I was appointed as the curriculum leader for the Science Department in the 2002 school year. In 2003, I was appointed vice principal at Lindsay Thurber and stayed in that position until June 2012. I began the 2012 school year as vice principal at Hunting Hills High School, but was seconded as District Administrator in October to support the District`s Admin Growth Project. In June 2013, I was appointed Principal of Lindsay Thurber and in 2020 I accepted the position as Associate Superintendent Learning Services.
I am pleased to work with the staff of the Learning Services department to help Red Deer Public Schools staff improve their professional practice. My portfolio also includes working with FNMI Learning Services, International Education and Students, French Immersion, and Spanish bilingual programs.
