Mother, Learner, Educator...
I am first and foremost a mom to a wonderful little man named Christian who is 9 years old and full of energy. My husband Leonard, my son and I live in Onoway where we have a small engine repair business, a dog, a cat and a pet salamander.
My husband and I both grew up in the Peace River region; myself, in the small town of McLennan. French is my first language. I attended a Francophone school and like most French Immersion schools including BES, our English program only started at grade 3. French being the spoken language in my household, my knowledge of the English language was limited until that time.
I have been teaching at Barrhead Elementary School for 13 years. Prior to marrying my husband and moving to Onoway, I have taught grade 3 in a Francophone school in Edmonton as well as multiple grades in French, English and Spanish in Fort Saskatchewan.
Teaching French as second language is a passion of mine. It is something of which I see and live the benefits every day. I very much enjoy my profession and am myself, constantly learning. My wish for all my students is for them to develop a passion for learning so they may keep growing all the days of their lives!
