About Me

I am someone who loves to learn.  Learning can happen when playing with Lego, reading a book, or when playing with puppets.  In juniour kindergarten and kindergarten I want to help set the foundation for learning and build the skills necessary to love learning as children continue on in school.  As I build learning experiences for the children in my classroom, I want them to have fun, laugh, and learn.  I want to build and foster learning intellectually and socially.

This is my sixth year teaching kindergarten and my fourth at Mackenzie Mountain School.  This past year, my fiance, Christine, and I had our first child.  We have made Norman Wells our home and look forward to making many memories here.  No matter where I am or what I am doing, I always find ways to learn or help others learn and grow.  In my spare time, I love to read, play baseball, play with my son, cook and bake, watch movies, sing, and swim.
