Welcome to 1B!
A special hello to my grade 1 students! I truly love teaching this age level, and find that hanging out with grade one students energizes me and brings me great joy. I am so happy to spend my days with my group of enthusiastic, wonder-filled learners! I am especially passionate about teaching students to read, and to open their eyes to what God is doing all around them.
Born and raised in Saskatoon, I graduated from Education at the U of S with specializations in music, language and computers. After a few years of working with early childhood students, I "retired" to be a full time wife and Mom. I returned to teaching when my own children were old enough to need me a little less. I have been on staff at Calgary Christian school since 2005, and I count myself blessed to teach in such an amazing place.
My husband Steve and I have 4 adult children, and 2 poorly behaved dogs. We've lived all over the place: northern Saskatchewan, southern California, and now beautiful Calgary.
Email is by far the easiest way to reach me. I check my email daily at 8:15 and try to check it periodically during the day. Phoning works too, but please be aware that I may not get your voice mails until late in the day. If you need to get a message to me of an urgent nature, do try emailing. If you don't hear a reply from me in time, please call the office and ask for a message to be sent to me in the classroom.

I love the Lord - I love kids - and I love my job! It's a joy to spend my days here.
