Retiring after many years in education, I am still passionate about education and working with students, teachers and administrators. The role of a technology coach with Learnstyle allows me to continue to use my knowledge and experience to build skills, independence, self-advocacy and self-esteem in the students I will be working with. It is also an opportunity for me to be part of a team and for me to learn new skills as well. I am passionate about life-long learning and making a difference in a child’s life.
My son has experienced many challenges along his educational journey and it is so inspiring to see how he is becoming an amazing elementary teacher.
I enjoy working and being with people. I am passionate about education and sharing my knowledge and experience to make it easier or better for someone else.
My parents were proud that I graduated with an Honours Degree in Science in Human Kinetics. They both never had the chance to go to school beyond high school so they were happy that I achieved this milestone.
I love Italian food: pasta, pizza, and more!

Being at the barn riding out on the trails
In high school I became heavily involved in sports, playing every sport and winning the junior and senior athlete of the year. Upon entering university I had to choose one sport to focus on, so I chose basketball. I studied Human Kinetics as well as playing on the Varsity Basketball Team. During this time I was able to play in 3 Canadian Championships. But I have always loved teaching and have had an amazing career in elementary and secondary school teaching and administration.
Trying New Things
You are never too young or old to experience a big catch!!.
My favourite pastime is being at the barn. The picture is of my horse that I rode and my daughter showed. It was great having a pastime that we could do together.
Chinese New Year is very big in Malaysia and we had huge celebration at the school I was the Head of School
More about me.
Once I began working, I purchased my first horse. I took lessons and competed every year on the A circuit that started in Florida and ended at the Royal Winter Fair. When my children were young we purchased a horse farm. So my children were able to grow up on a farm with animals and horses.
