I am the youngest of nine children. My family is originally from Newfoundland but we have lived all over Canada including Nunavut, Ontario, and Alberta. I love to travel whenever I can and experience new foods, beautiful sights, and different cultures. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2010 with a major in French and a minor in English. I was quite fortunate to be able to complete the third year of my undergraduate degree in Nice, France. There I was immersed in the Southern French culture and attended the Université de Nice. This life-changing experience definitely enhanced my love of the French language and culture as well as my desire to continue to travel the world.   

I earned my Bachelor of Education Degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2011 with a focus on intermediate and secondary education (7-12). I have now been teaching at École McTavish Junior High School since it opened in 2011. I have enjoyed every minute spent with the impeccable staff and the diverse group of talented students that we have at our school. This year I am teaching Grade 7 and 8 Social Studies, Health 8, and French as a Second Language for grade 7. 

I send weekly email updates for core classes so that parents can stay in the loop of what's going on and be informed of any important upcoming dates.  If you're not receiving these emails, please let me know. Feel free to contact me by email if you have any questions or concerns.
