This is my first year as a Wildcat however it is my 26th year working as an educator where 20 of those years have been in Yellowknife. I have experience as a music specialist, middle school classroom teacher, principal and program support teacher.  

I am a champion of Indigenous education, and I believe in meeting the needs of every student through a strength-based approach. I also know a child cannot learn until a positive relationship has developed between the adult and student.  

I am a mom of two teenage boys and a “cuddler” of a very "needy" boxer named, "Jojo".  I enjoy watching my boys play hockey, a strong cup of Tetley tea, listening to music or playing the piano, and walking or skiing along the many trails Yellowknife offers. 

I am looking forward to a fantastic year at WMS!
