Thank you for visiting our classroom blog.
I currently teach grade 2/3 at Claude E. Garton School, in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Although this will be my fifth year at teaching at Claude, I am a former Claude Garton student and I started my teaching career doing long term occasional work at Claude in 1998, so I am thrilled to be working with the staff and students here.
I was born and raised in Thunder Bay and find it very rewarding to be employed in my home town. I attended French Immersion from kindergarten to O.A.C. but decided to Major in English at Lakehead University. I was a lifeguard and swimming instructor with Thunder Bay Aquatics for seven years before becoming a full time school teacher. I give credit to my family, friends, husband, children, colleagues, students and special teachers along the way for supporting me though my career goals and achievements.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children and extended family, travelling, SCUBA diving, Sea-Dooing, swimming, walking, doing crafts, drawing, painting, listening to music, reading, and gardening.
