Greetings! I am thrilled to be joining the Bert Ambrose Elementary School Team as the Grade 3 Teacher.
I graduated from the University of Guelph with a BSc. in Biology and from Acadia University with a BEd. in Elementary Education. My first year as a teacher, I taught at a special education school for boys in Ontario. I then went overseas and taught at a Canadian school in Hong Kong, teaching Primary and Middle School Science and Gr.2 at a British School in Taiwan where my son was born. We lived in Quebec for 9 years and during that time I was fortunate to fill the role as the Library Media Specialist at a small elementary school in rural Vermont. Last year, I was the Grade 5-6 and Library at Anne Roberts Young in Fort St. John.
This is my second year living in Fort St. John. We took a 3-week road trip across Northern Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and then BC, with my husband, two boys (now ages 9 and 12) and two old Taiwanese dogs (ages 12 and 13) and this past summer, we drove out to the coast to see Prince Rupert. I enjoy playing badminton, volleyball and tennis but am most passionate about hiking and love books of all kinds!
Let’s work together to provide an exciting and rewarding year for your child!
