Teaching is my second profession and I feel very fortunate to have started my career as an Elementary Teacher (K-7) in the Quesnel School District. Over the past five years in SD28, I’ve had the opportunity to teach in a variety of rural and urban settings, sharing my passion for outdoor, experiential, and place-based learning. Whether it was taking students on a multi-day canoe trip or traveling with my class to the Legislature in Victoria, I have felt supported in my professional autonomy. This has given me the opportunity to provide students with deep learning experiences.

As I near the end of my fifth year of teaching, I look back on how far I’ve come as an educator, and the opportunities I’ve had in the District to improve my practice through workshops and mentoring opportunities. This spring I am beginning a new journey as I start my Masters of Ecological Education, thanks to the financial support offered through SD28. Our students deserve the best education that we can provide. This requires high standards in teaching. School District 28 has given me the chance to strive for excellence in teaching so I in turn can help my students reach their potential and make their learning meaningful.

I have worked with Quesnel School District for 14 years in a variety of roles (TOC, Resource Teacher, Kindergarten Teacher, Early Literacy Teacher). Throughout that time I have had the opportunity to continually build upon my professional skills through participating in workshops, district initiatives, and professional development opportunities, as well as pursuing a Masters degree. After taking part in a district Early Literacy Initiative, I was encouraged and supported to share my knowledge and practice in the area of Early Literacy with other teachers across BC through presenting at workshops, conferences, and at Professional Development days. This has led to opportunities to work professionally with leaders within the Early Literacy field from Canada and the United States.
