Bachelor of Education: Elementary Education & French Master of Education: Learning Technologies & Immersion Certificate Apple Teacher
My passions for Elementary Education and for French have brought me to L'Etoile Du Nord. I have been part of the LNFI community since 2004. I studied at the University of Calgary, Université de Montreal and University of Minnesota. My previous positions include being a 5th grade teacher in a partial immersion school in Halifax, NS and as an Elementary level (K-8) French teacher in London, ON. At LNFI, I taught 5th grade for 8 years and Technology for 5 years.
In my free time, I enjoy being active outdoors. I row with the Minneapolis Rowing Club, and enjoy downhill and cross-country skiing. I also love to cook and take long walks with my dog, Nigel.
This year I am very excited to be developing a Makerspace (Atelier STIMA) at each of our campuses. Visit my homepage to learn more. My philosophy of teaching to quote Yeats is: "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
