I was raised in Fort Smith, N.W.T. and completed high school at PWK High School in Fort Smith. After graduating from the U of A with a B.Ed. in 1986, I taught for two years in Fort Norman, N.W.T. (Tulita), Grades 2,3 & 4 and two years in Fort McPherson, N.W.T. (Tetl'it Zheh), Grades 5-9. I moved to Yellowknife and started teaching at École William McDonald Middle School in 1990. I’ve taken maternity leave and other leaves totalling 4 years to be at home with my two daughters. Cynthia is attending the University of Alberta and Jennifer just started her first year at MacEwan University. Other than teaching one year of at J.H.Sissons (1999/2000) my teaching career in Yellowknife has been at École William McDonald Middle School. This is my 30th year at Yellowknife Education District #1, and my 34th year in the teaching profession. My philosophy of education is simple, “Kids don’t care what you know until they know that you care.”
