Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

This is my 14th year teaching. I am currently and have most taught upper elementary, although I have taught all grade levels at the elementary sector. This year, I am teaching Grade 6 ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies along with Grade 5 Science and Social Studies. I decided to become a teacher, because I like working with the public and helping students discover their full potential. I currently sit on the board of directors for CASA which represents and helps Anglophones in the Gaspesie.
