Teachers - Elementary


Growing up in Grande Prairie along with being a student at St. Gerard in the very first French Immersion program, has instilled a deep sense of community in me.  It thrills me to teach younger brothers and sisters of former students and I adore meeting new ones too.  This year, I am being recognized for 20 years with the district and the majority of them have been at St. Gerard in Grade 3.  I have a daughter who is in her 2nd year of college and a son who is beginning Grade 11.  I am involved with Alberta Education where I participate in the creation of the Grade 3 Student Learner Assessments.  I am also moving into my 3rd year in the development of the new Alberta Curriculum.  Both of these opportunities enable me to collaborate with teachers across the province and develop a better understanding of student objectives.  Throughout the year, I will travel to Edmonton and participate in approximately 15 days of collaboration.
