Teachers - Grade Two

Key Roles

I have been teaching  at Ross Ford Elementary School since the fall of 2001.  I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with young children.  Encouraging creativity in children is my passion.  I frequently remember the words of my Mom, a retired elementary teacher, -"Oh, you are so lucky to teach! "  I  agree!

I live on an acreage with my husband and Border Collie/Healer dog.  My two sons, Jacob and Ben, are pursuing their education dreams by attending university. I love spending time with my family when we are able to get together and cooking up large feasts.  I enjoy gardening, golfing, hiking, yoga and spending time at the lake.  I have been an avid hockey mom for years and I am missing hockey now that my son has moved on to other opportunities.  Hopefully, I can attend hockey games at the local Didsbury Arena to attend my student's games.
