Meet the Teacher

Welcome to Grade 3/4

I am excited to have the opportunity to work with all the new and returning Gr. 3/4 students. I hope to make this experience a positive, productive and rewarding year. I believe in encouraging students to work hard, try their best, and recognize and develop their personal strengths. Students develop confidence in sharing their ideas in an environment that is guided by the basic virtues of the 7 Teachings.

I truly enjoy working with children of all ages, and have experience teaching various grade levels from Nursery to Gr. 12. Personally, I am a proud Metis woman who is a married mother to four children ages 14, 17, 22 and 28. I am honoured to be part of David Livingstone Community School.
