Tell us about yourself!
I am one of the grade 6 teachers here at Terrace Ridge. I returned to university later in life to become a teacher and started teaching at Terrace Ridge in 2011. I am one of the Athletic Supervisors for Terrace Ridge and coach many of the extracurricular sports teams such as golf, curling, volleyball, and basketball teams. Away from school, I enjoy many hobbies such as golf, kayaking, swimming, reading and going for walks. I have been married for a very long time and have two grown children as well as three grandchildren. I am a HUGE sports fan and enjoy cheering for the Edmonton Elks, the Calgary Flames, Toronto Blue Jays and many other sports.
