I am excited to be teaching at Ecole Barrie Wilson School with such a talented and enthusiastic group of people. It is a rare opportunity to be the first teaching staff at a new school. I look forward to creating, along with my colleagues, a positive learning environment for the children we will teach.
I have taught with Red Deer Public since 1998, most of which has taken place in a Kindergarten classroom. I love teaching and making connections with my students and their families. It is wonderful to listen to a child's perception of the world and observe the way in which they solve problems. I am continually learning new ways of looking at the world through these little people. I love their honesty because mostly it humbles me and always makes me think or laugh. I am thankful that I have a profession that I love!
My husband is the Principal of Aspen Heights Elementary School. We have two amazing girls, Megan and Leah, who keep us hopping with their various activities.
