Who am I?  

I am a North Shore girl – born and raised. I grew up in Deep Cove and I attended elementary and secondary school in both North and West Vancouver schools.

I knew I wanted to be a teacher from an early age, so as soon as I could, I applied for a the Bachelor of Education Degree Program at the University of Victoria on Vancouver Island. I completed my four year program there and performed three practicums in a variety of classrooms and grade levels. Following this, I was lucky enough to get my foot in the door in the West Vancouver School District with a part time contract. During my first year teaching I went back and completed my Fifth Year of a Personalized Learning Institute program at the University of Victoria. From there I moved into a full time contract at another school and have been there ever since. Last spring (2021), I completed my Masters Degree from the University of Victoria in the field of Educational Technology.

What am I doing now?

This year I am going into my seventh year teaching  at Hollyburn Elementary School in the West Vancouver School District. I am also in my third year as Vice Principal and am very excited to continue supporting students, families, teachers, and our local community in the learning journey. I love my job and am extremely passionate about what I do! I use this platform as a way to summarize, share, and develop my understanding of Technology and Innovation in the field of Education.
When I am not at school you can find me spending time with friends, family, getting lost in a good book, and exploring hiking trails across the Lower Mainland.
