About Me

I am a new teacher who has recently graduated with my two-year Bachelor of Education (After Degree) with a focus on senior years education at a small university in Manitoba, Canada. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in the spring of 2011 with a major in History and a double minor in both Geography and Geology.

I have recently accepted a position as a Grade 7-10 classroom teacher beginning in the fall of 2013 and will be teaching science, math, and art.

When I am not at school, my fiance and I are busily planning our upcoming wedding, working around the family farm or keeping up with our favourite football team: the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
