I have been an educator for over 30 years. Wow, that's a long time! Most of those years I have taught Grade One. I love teaching children how to become readers and writers. I started my career in Northern British Columbia and I came to Ponoka Elementary School 21 years ago. I live in Ponoka with my husband Ron, and we have raised our grown children in this town. Some of my favourite things to do in my spare time are camping, hiking, travelling, reading and cooking for my family.
