About

I am currently a grade four teacher at the north east campus of Foundations for the Future Charter Academy in Calgary, Alberta.  I teach the core subject areas, as well as first year Spanish to our grade four students.  I am a member of our literacy and character committee, and the head of the technology committee.  I act as a liaison of technology information from our central office, to administrators and teachers, believing that communication is key to this role and pride myself on building strong relationships.  I am passionate about creating socially aware students who make a positive contribution to society and believe that they have an impact in the world.

Personally, I am an avid traveler and love to expand my knowledge of cultures and other languages.  To date I have visited four different countries in Africa, three in central America, China, and have traveled to places in Europe, Canada and the United States.  I am interested in environmental conservation and love the great outdoors.  Snowboarding, hiking, and enjoying nature with my dog are my greatest past-times.

I enjoy volunteering and try to as much as I can.  I am currently a member of the Educators Council for the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada, and the webmaster for the Calgary Reading Council.

As an educator I strive to be the best I can; to continuously learn, challenge myself, and provide my students with a safe and caring classroom environment. I hope to instill the same mentality in my students.

“Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”
~Nelson Mandela
