Biography

This year I am excited to be teaching Gr. 11 sciences (Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Science 24) at St. John Paul II. One of my main goals this year is to develop a "thinking classroom"; one where students can develop critical thinking skills while communicating and collaborating with one another. I believe that these are some of the key skills that will allow students to be successful in their future endeavours. 

My own education has focused on science. Prior to my education degree, I completed a MSc in Biology and a BSc with a Specialization in Pharmacology. I have a passion for science, but I also enjoy travel, sports, and music. This year I am involved in coaching the Jr. High Girls Basketball team, as well as playing on a community team. My husband and I live in Grande Prairie with our two young children, both of whom attend École St. Gérard.
