Grade 4

Greetings and welcome to my web site! I have worked with children for most of my adult life. Firstly, I studied Early Childhood Education from Mount Royal University and obtained a 2 year diploma. Then I worked with 2 -5 year old's for 5 years at M.R.U. and the U of C child care centers, before returning to the University of Calgary to study Education. I have been teaching with elementary students for 22 years in Calgary and Medicine Hat. I have taught in Calgary and Medicine Hat. I have three children and I enjoy spending time with family travelling, hiking, kayaking, geocaching, playing games, and reading. I hope you find this site informative and useful. Enjoy your digital learning! I am excited to be part of the team at Wilson Learning Center and look forward to my first year teaching in this community!
