About Me

I am entering my 26th year of teaching.  I have taught everything from pre-kindergarten to grade 11.  I took a 5 year break from teaching when my kids were little and we were moving to Red Deer.  This is my 12th year of teaching grade one.  I love teaching grade one!  The progress that I see over the course of the year astounds me every year.  I am super excited to be at Annie L. Gaetz  this year and to get to know all of my new students this year.  Before coming to central Alberta, I taught in northern Alberta.  I love living in central Alberta.  It seems like everything that my family and I like to do is close by.  Besides teaching, I love camping, traveling, scrapbooking and cooking/baking.  I have two children, Avery and Wyatt.  They are in grade 11 and 12.  Avery dances competitively and Wyatt is entering his fourth year of alpine ski racing.  As well as ski racing, Wyatt also is a competitive road cyclist.  He rides his road bike, mostly with Mr. Grainger.  The two of them started up their own bike club four years ago.  I am beyond excited to part of the Annie L. Gaetz team!
