Grade 9 ELA Teacher, Academic Counsellor & Inclusive Education
I grew up in the town of Olds, AB. Following graduation, I moved on to Red Deer College and then transferred to the University of Alberta in Edmonton where I received a Bachelor of Education majoring in Social Studies and minoring in Inclusive Education. I am half way through my Masters of Educational Leadership. I will be completing this program in July, 2023! So just like you, I am a student too!
My husband Dan and I live in Olds and stay busy raising our three children- Jack, Myer and Nora.
I work as a teacher and the academic counsellor here at Hugh Sutherland School. I am proud to have spent my K-12 years in Chinook's Edge School Division and now teach in the same division where my children will also spend their school years.
When I am not working, you can find me cheering on my own personal kids at their various activities. I also love to read, run, golf, play cards and curl up with a great tv show.
My passion for children and helping them learn is what gives me purpose. I love being an educator and mother!
