About Me

I am ecstatic to be in my sixth year as a teacher at Millgrove School and was honoured in my first year at Millgrove to receive the Edwin Parr Award. I am following in the footsteps of my father, a teacher himself, and feel truly privileged to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful children at Millgrove. In my time at the University of Alberta, I was able to work with Dr. Catherine Adams on a research project that examined the use of SMART Boards in schools, and I have continued to enjoy using technology in my classroom.

I have a deep passion for learning and working with children, stemming from my experiences as an instructor at the Telus World of Science, a counselor at the YMCA, and longtime Sunday School teacher. I am married to my fantastic husband Matt, and have a four-year-old Jack and one-year-old Ellie. We are very much involved in our community and church in Edmonton, and enjoy music, gardening, and Eskimos football.
