I was born in Yellowknife, NWT and have some very cold memories! I attended J.H.Sissons School from Kindergarten to just after the Christmas break in Grade 5, when the ferry opened and my family was able to move to St.Albert (after waiting for weeks between the ice road and ferry closures and break downs). I then finished out my Grade 5 year at Muriel Martin Elementary School in St.Albert before flowing through Sir George Simpson in St.Albert for grades 6-9 and Paul Kane High School for grades 10-12. I attended the University of Alberta for my post secondary education, graduating in 2013 before jumping into my teaching career. I have worked both in Grade 1 and Grade 6 French Immersion classrooms and am very excited about the 2014-2015 school year!
