English Kindergarten

I am very excited and eager to begin another chapter in my teaching career at Coalbanks Elementary School.  I have been teaching since 2002 with Lethbridge Division. I taught grade 6 my first year at Senator Buchanan, and then spent the next 6 years at Wilson Middle School in grade 6.  I then moved to Nicholas Sheran Community School to teach grade 5, and grade 4.  In 2013 I made the move to teacher Kindergarten. 

I have a passion for early childhood and learning through play. I take pride in connecting with my students and their families to foster strong relationships, and provide them with the best environment for learning. 

When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my husband and our family. I enjoy reading, painting, traveling, camping and spending quality time with my daughter and son. I am looking forward to starting this journey with you!
