I have been a teacher with the Grande Prairie Catholic School Division since 2005. I am currently the Numeracy Lead Teacher for our district. I am passionate about learning and teaching mathematics. I want to help teachers and students gain confidence in their numeracy skills, most importantly problem-solving, collaboration, and perseverance. I recently earned my Master's Degree in Education from Simon Fraser University. What I really learned is how to think and how to learn. I want to help teachers help students learn to think, to take risks, to gain confidence in themselves as learners. I am passionate about teaching through problem solving and learning collaboratively.
