About Me

I am very excited to be part of the teaching team at Don Campbell Elementary School.  It will be such a memorable year opening a brand new school!  I have over 25 years of experience teaching grade one, with many of those years spent job sharing with Charlene Hamill.  We enjoy working together and sharing ideas, ensuring the transition from one teacher to the other is seamless and uninterrupted. We follow a Thursday - Wednesday schedule to ensure the children see both of us throughout the week, while enjoying the benefits of a "fresh" teacher mid-week.  Strong communication is one of our top priorities.  

I am an original Red Deerian, being born and raised in our beautiful city.  Outside of school I enjoy many activities and spending time with my family. I am married with a grown son and daughter.  We also have a Iittle dog named Indy.  I love being outdoors and enjoy camping, hiking, quadding, gardening, biking, golfing, walking, skiing, hockey, and skating. Teaching is my passion and I believe my life has been greatly enriched by having the opportunity to meet and work with so many fantastic children, parents and colleagues.  I am really looking forward to meeting many new families this year!
