I completed my BEd in 2006 and started my first teaching position under a ministerial letter of authority in some of the northernmost communities in Alberta (Fox Lake and Fort Vermillion), we then moved down to a beautifully tiny farming town (Foremost) and finally, as my family started to grow, I came back home to Pineridge in Calgary. I am a middle school Math, Science, Social Studies and options teacher and recently completed a Master Degree in Leadership.
Surrounded by Family
My husband of almost 23 years and I have two beautiful children. My daughter is 14 (about to embark on her journey into high school) and my son 6 (in grade 1/2). While we had the option to work anywhere in the country, we chose to come back to where our families live. I have always considered North East Calgary to be my home and have many relationships within the community through hockey, and our Community Association that keep me actively engaged outside of my Association work.
