I am a huge lover of and advocate for the arts and humanities. I was raised in Sherwood Park, belonging to a family that greatly values the fine arts. My entire life has been full of a variety of lessons and performances, all throughout my education continuing into my career! I adore books, movies, music, cuisine, travel, art, and close friendships. My greatest passion, however, is musical theatre. Outside of Wolves Drama, I also enjoy performing, directing, coordinating theatre programs and camps for youth, and producing shows with my theatre companies within the community.
Since starting my teaching career, I have always taught both a mix of core subjects and the dramatic arts. I have been a teacher in Elk Island Public Schools since 2005, but have just joined Lakeland’s awesome Wolfpack starting the 2018/2019 school year. In this ever changing career, I love the many opportunities I have to see my students gain knowledge and form opinions, or find their tribe, or discover talents and develop passion for the arts. Jr High is a brutal time of life...I’m honoured to be here in the trenches, supporting our kiddos.
As both a teacher and a mom, I feel strongly that school should be a place where young people learn to positively contribute to society and to be decent human beings. I believe that personally connecting with other people, and truly understanding that we all have value and deserve to be safe and happy is of utmost importance for today’s youth. I try to exemplify these values as well as provide opportunities for students to do the same in class, in our school community, and in extracurricular activities.
