A little about me:
I grew up in Fort McMurray where I went to Ecole St. Paul, St. Anne’s, Westwood, then graduated at Merc. I was part of the competitive dance team at Generation Dance Studio & the competitive gymnastics team at Norfort Gymnastics Club, later moving onto teach for both companies.
I then moved to Edmonton to complete my Bachelor of Elementary Education at the University of Alberta with honours. I then was hired immediately upon graduation in Bristol, England where I taught grade 3 and absolutely loved it. I travelled a ton while living overseas and moved to Asia so I could get certified as a Hatha Yoga instructor. While living in Thailand, I received an amazing opportunity to move to Sri Lanka for a little while and teach Yoga at the German Embassy. In early February of 2019, I moved back to Canada and found myself back in my hometown of Fort McMurray teaching grade 3 then grade 6 at Walter & Gladys Hill.
I currently am teaching grade 4 this year at WGH, and hope to inspire students to be their best, unique self!
I am blessed to be able to work at such an incredible school & cannot wait to explore this grade 4 year with all of you.
