About Me

I am honoured to be joining the team at Copperhaven School. It’s a great opportunity to start a new adventure and it’s not everyday we get to be pioneers. I am excited to be on this journey with the Copperhaven community!

I have been teaching in PSD for nine years, with most of my time being spent at Wabamun and Blueberry School. In my travels through several different schools in our division, I have experienced the value in working together as a team to create a positive learning environment for students. I am looking forward to working with the staff, parents and families of Copperhaven to create a culture within the school community and classroom environment where each student feels valued and successful.

Although I have experience teaching Grades 1-9, my focus has been Grade 7-9 Math and Science. I am particularly passionate about math, and I strive to pass on some of my enthusiasm for the subject to my students. My goal is to help students appreciate and understand both math and science concepts by providing meaningful and authentic learning experiences that allow them to build connections between what they are learning and how it can be applied to explore solutions to problems, support learning in other areas, and drive further learning.

I am looking forward to a new year full of adventure and learning with my new team at Copperhaven School!
