About Me

Bonjour! I am so happy to be teaching Grade One French Immersion at Mountview this year.

I grew up in Red Deer and graduated from the French Immersion program, which I attended from Kindergarten to Grade 12. I actually attended École Mountview as my elementary school. I graduated from the Campus Saint Jean in 2007 at the University of Alberta with my degree in French Immersion Elementary Education. Upon graduating, I taught kindergarten in Okotoks and then returned to Red Deer in 2008 where I have taught Grade One first at École Mountview and then at École Barrie Wilson. I have been teaching for 10 years. I am now returning from maternity leave and I am happy to be coming back to Mountview.

As well as being a teacher, I am also a mom to three girls. My 2 oldest girls both attend Mountview. My husband and I love taking our family camping as well as swimming and on bike rides.

I’m looking forward to working with you and our school community to make your child’s year a successful, positive and enjoyable one.
