Learning Services Facilitator
I was born in Saskatoon, and grew up in Rainbow Lake (Way, way up North by the Northwest Territories). I have lived in Calgary, Okotoks, Lethbridge, High River, and now Medicine Hat. Before becoming a teacher, I went to SAIT and took my Emergency Medical Technician Ambulance. I have been an EMT for about 25 years. I went back to University in Lethbridge and completed my Bachelor of Arts and Education and finished that in 2000. Wow that means I have been teaching for 21 years...Time flies when you love what you do! I started my teaching career in Medicine Hat at Monsignor McCoy and then moved to St. Mary’s 4 years later. I teach Social Studies and Language Arts and First Aid (when we are not in a pandemic). I have four boys, 19, 17, and twins who are 14. My 19 year old is presently apprenticing as an electrician, my 17 year old plays hockey in the AJHL for the Sherwood Park Crusaders, and one of my twins attend St. Mary’s in grade 9 French Immersion and the other is moved to Edmonton to go to hockey academy at NAX.. I love to travel, when I have money, which is never with four boys in hockey. I also love the Edmonton Oilers and regularly bug Mr. Moll who loves the Vancouver Canucks. St. Mary’s is a great place to go to school and I love the staff and students here. My life is definitely on the right course.
