Teachers - Grade 4/5
I am originally from Nova Scotia, but growing up with a father in the military I had the opportunity to call many places across Canada my home. I attended school at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario where I received both my Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degree. Upon finishing my schooling I decided to live abroad, teaching English as a second language in South Korea and later China. When I returned to Canada in 2015 I joined my parents who had recently moved to Yellowknife. I fell in love with the North, and knew that this was where I wanted to be. I was hired at KDS in 2018 and I am now on my second year teaching grade 4/5. In my classroom I strive to create a caring, safe environment where students are engaged through hands on learning. I value the relationships I build with my students and their daily triumphs in learning. I feel extremely lucky to be part of an amazing school community!
