About Me


I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! Thirty-three years ago I took a leap of faith and left my hometown of Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, and moved to Hinton where I have raised my 3 children. I am fortunate enough to be a Nana to 6 beautiful grandchildren ranging in age from 2-15. When I am not spending time with my family, I enjoy reading, golf, fishing, camping, woodworking, and traveling.

I have worked with Grande Yellowhead Public School Division for the last 15 years teaching grades 1-5. Six years ago, I left the classroom to join the technology team in the central office where I have enjoyed planning, building, and implementing educational technology. I am, however, super excited to be back in the classroom here at Crescent Valley.

I am confident that our class will have an amazing year of learning, laughter, and fun. Please feel free to reach out to me via email, phone, or in-person if you have a concern or would like to chat about your child's progress.

I look forward to meeting you all as the year progresses!
