This is my 23rd year as an educator! Grade One is my happy place with students who make me laugh and remind me of my passion each day. I grew up in Bluffton, AB and then graduated from Rimbey Jr./Sr. High. I had big plans to live in the city but my husband brought us back to his hometown so he could join his family accounting firm. We have spent 22 wonderful years in Ponoka raising our 3 adult children Jared, Kate and Emily. The other loves in my life include black tea and two naughty chihuahua’s named Oliver & Ava, learning about how children learn to read, and maybe I like Amazon-ing a little too much.
