A little bit about me:

I am excited to be teaching again this year at Cold Lake High School! I am in my 14th year of teaching sciences in Northern Lights School Division. I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree from the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI), a Bachelor's of Education Degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) and a Master's in Environmental Science, also from MUN.

I was born and riased in a small town in Newfoundland, and although I am far from where I grew up I am very lucky to have many of my close family members living close by. I now consider Cold Lake my home and I am proud to be working at Cold Lake HIgh School!

I enjoy running and walking my do Tao, she's a chocolate lab and loves her exercise. During the summer I spend a lot of time camping and relaxing with my husband, friends and family. We love to travel, we spent a couple of weeks this winter in Costa Rica and we have a trip planned for this summer to explore Alaska.

I have the pleasure of coaching the Senior Girls Basketball Team here at CLHS and so that keeps me busy during much of the the winter. I'm a big supporter of all activities at the school and so if you see me out cheering on a team or watching a performance please say hellp and we can discu how wonderful your son or daughter is!

My office hours are before school (8:20-8:45) and over the lunch break on Mondays and Thursdsays. I am available other times by appointment. I encourage students to stop in for extra help when necessary.

Please call or email if you have any questions or concerns. Together we can work toward a succussful semester for our students! #RoyalsPride
