The needs of our students continue to change, and teachers are continually adapting to their needs. Throughout my 20 years of teaching, I have had the opportunity to explore the diversity of our profession in and out of the classroom. These experiences and my willingness to face challenges will allow me to best voice the concerns of teachers in Edmonton District.
In my career, I have taught grades 4 – 12, in suburban and rural districts, in English and French immersion schools, and in public and Catholic districts. Currently, I am a Grade 8 homeroom teacher in a K–9 school in St. Albert Catholic. Upon moving to a Catholic school district, I worked to complete my masters in religious education.
My ATA involvement started in my second year of teaching — I attended Summer Conference and became secretary of Wolf Creek Local No. 3.
Over the last 20 years, at the local level, I have been secretary, Economic Policy Committee chair, Annual Representative Assembly rep, Negotiating Sub Committee chair, Professional Development chair, Local Communications officer, liaison chair, Policy Advisory chair, North Central Teachers’ Convention Association rep and local president since 2013.
At a regional level, I have been on the executive of the North Central Teachers’ Convention Association since 2017, acting as secretary and president.
At the provincial level, I have been involved with the ATA Science Council since 2013 in the roles of assistant conference director, conference director and president.
Currently, I am local president of Greater St. Albert Catholic Teachers’ Local No. 23, president of North Central Teachers’ Convention Association and past president of the ATA Science Council.
My passion for the teaching profession, my flexibility in meeting new challenges and my tenacity make me an excellent candidate for the role of district representative.
