Welcome! Thank you for visiting and learning a bit about me and our amazing little school. I feel proud to be a member of the Redfish community.

My experience spans over 25 years as a primary and early intermediate teacher (Grades 1-4). I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Victoria, a Bachelor of Education, as well as a Master of Education, from the University of British Columbia. Redfish has been my home since 2009. Yes, I have been here for a while.

On a personal note, I am a wife and mother to two amazing young adults. As a family, we enjoy spending time at both at home and exploring our mountains on four wheels. Having lived in this area all my life, I am deeply committed to sharing my love for this land and water with my students.

One of my passions is literacy, both personally and professionally. I love to read and learn! I am constantly searching for ways to improve my practice through professional development. I also love the spark I get to witness when children find “the book” that sends them on their way to develop their own life-long love for reading. Knowing I played a small part in nurturing that fills my bucket.

You can often find us outside, playing games, observing, and learning in the schoolyard or in the nearby forest beside the spawning channel. So much of what we learn about can be connected to our land. We are so lucky to have this amazing environment to learn and grow in. My classroom is currently home to our school’s glass observation beehive, a live learning tool on loan to us from the Bee Awareness Society. Feel free to visit our busy bees, as they are fascinating to watch. Pollinators are such a vital part of our ecosystem, and we are so fortunate to share our classroom with them. We can learn so much from bees!
