Hi Gladiators!

I graduated from the University of Alberta and Red Deer College’s Middle Years program, and have completed my Masters in Educational Leadership through Concordia University.

I was lucky to teach at Mountview Elementary school for seven years (Grades 4 and 5). While at MV, the school's Makerspace allowed for countless connections between the AB Ed curriculum and 21st century technologies (e.g. 3D printing, virtual reality and coding). I also had the opportunity to participate in several of Mountview's (and now Glendale's) extracurricular clubs and activities, including the We Day, basketball, handball, running and cross-country skiing teams.

I'm thrilled to be back at Glendale for a fourth year, where I had my first teaching practicum and helped coach basketball for several years. The fact that Glendale has since converted to the School of Sciences and Technology only makes my return that much sweeter; to say that I'm passionate about the sciences would be a major understatement.
