Student Support

After graduating high school, I went to the University of Saskatchewan where I completed a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Political Studies. I worked in banking for several years before finally realizing that I was meant to be a teacher! I went back to school at the University of Regina where I completed my Bachelor of Education. I have worked in three schools within the Sun West School Division – Lucky Lake School, Rosetown Central High School, and the Sun West Distance Learning Centre! I have taught middle years and high school social studies and history, ELA, Career Ed., Health, Life Transitions, and Psychology. I’ve worked as a Career Guidance Counsellor, and I now work as a Student Support Teacher here at the DLC.

I teach beacause I can’t afford to be a student forever. I love to learn and be challenged, and I love to help my students (re)discover their love of learning, as well. Teaching allows me the opportunity to continue to learn alongside my students every day.

I am currently working toward my Special Education qualification through the program offered at the University of Saskatchewan. I have been involved with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization for nearly ten years as a Big Sister Mentor. I also have a love of travel, and recently I was able to take a group of students on an amazing – and life-changing – service trip to Tanzania, Africa!

Chocolate is my favourite food.
I love riding horses.
Sitting on our boat out on the lake is one of my favourite things to do in the summer.
