I graduated with a Bachelor of Education from University of Manitoba in 2011. Post-graduation, I worked as a substitute teacher in various schools in and around Winnipeg. It was during this time that I found myself gravitating towards the inspiring but challenging Junior School age group. An opportunity presented itself to teach in an international school in Shanghai, where I taught Grade 2 for three years to a multicultural group of international students. On my return to Winnipeg earlier this year, I was delighted to join the faculty at Balmoral Hall School, where I hope to continue my successful educational fostering of this particular age group.
I grew up in Winnipeg but have enjoyed travelling widely around the world, gaining a varied experience and meeting people of many cultures. It is this global and inclusive perspective that I bring to my teaching in the classroom. I appreciate the value of introducing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) concepts to girls at a young age.
I am a motivated, enthusiastic, and involved educator who understands that all children are different, and I tailor my approach to each individual student to allow them to grow.
