I am very excited to be joining Westlock Elementary! This year I am teaching music to the grade 5, 6, and kindergarten classes.

 I grew up just outside of Westlock on a farm and I went to school at Westlock Elementary and R.F Staples. I graduated from the University of Alberta in 2007. I have taught in Rochester and Clyde and have subbed in a variety of schools in both Pembina Hills and Aspen View.

I have always enjoyed music; growing up I took piano lessons and participated in band throughout junior high and high school. My decision to play the alto saxophone in band was influenced, at least in part, by Lisa Simpson (although she plays the baritone).

I am looking forward to a fantastic 2014-2015 school year!
