Here I am with my family: my husband Chris, and my two sons, Michael and Joe. As a family, we love to play sports and build with Lego. We live in Barrhaven and love to check out splash pads in the summer!

My Teaching Life

This is my 16th year as a teacher! Time has flown by since I started in 2004. Most of my 16 years was spent teaching high school students, at St. Mark High School and at St. Francis Xavier High School. I also taught e-learning courses to students in our school board and sometimes to students all over Ontario! I've taught English, History, Law, Math, and Leadership Courses. I also coached soccer and track and field, and organized Leadership Camps and other school activities. This is my first year at St. Emily, and I'm beyond excited to be teaching at this school and to go on this new adventure.

I am so excited to be your Grade 6 teacher this year- we are going to have so much fun learning together! Grade 6 is going to be amazing: you will be the leaders of the school, prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation, and end the year with the special Leaving Ceremony, all ready for your next adventure- High School!
