Teachers - Grade 1A

Key Roles

I attended Camrose Lutheran College and the University of Alberta.  I have taught for 22 years amazing years!   I am so fortunate that each day I have fulfilled the dream of a five year old who wanted to become a teacher.  Most of my career was spent at Cremona School, but I have also taught at Ross Ford, Hugh Sutherland and Midway.  This is my second year at CES.  Thank you to staff, parents and students who have made my transition to CES a smooth and enjoyable experience.

My husband I have lived in the Carstairs area for 34 years.   We have three beautiful daughters who spread their wings and found homes of their own.

Larry and I are very fortunate, as we have two close family friends who we have lovingly adopted.  It is amazing how their four children melt our hearts with the simple words  “Grandmama and Papa”.   

We have an extended family that includes: miniature horses, a miniature daschaund, a cat and goldfish.
