Teachers - Literacy Coach/Grade Five
G'day. I am an Australian living in Canada. I moved here on a teacher exchange in December 2014 and fell in love with Canada - hook, line and sinker. I am passionate about igniting the flame of learning in each student I have the privilege to teach. I graduated as a teacher at the end of 2003 and have enjoyed having my own grade of students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 every year since.
Prior to teaching I have worked as a computer analyst programmer, book keeper and personal assistant. I am also a mother of two adult children, who also love traveling.
I really enjoy being outdoors: hiking, snow shoeing, boating, spotting birds and flowers plus finding geocaches. I also really love to travel and see new places in the world. Reading is something I do everyday and I enjoy writing also. I am always doing something or asking questions, as I love learning new things.
At Fairview Elementary I am so lucky to be the Literacy Coach in the mornings and teach Grade 5 in the afternoons.
