I come to Learnstyle after career as an educator and counsellor. I am happy to continue my support of students in this new role of Reading Coach. I am passionate about helping students succeed and, most importantly, develop confidence and belief in themselves and their opportunities.
One specific person doesn’t come to mind when I hear the word hero. When I think of a hero, I think of anyone who is getting up in the morning and trying…even when things feel too hard or even when they feel afraid.
My passion would be kindness and acceptance …being kind to others and being kind to yourself.
This was a picture of my first visit to a “big beach”.
My favourite animal is any, though dogs top the list. We are definitely a family of dogs…they often come close to outnumbering people at family get-togethers.
My favourite foods are appetizers and cheese boards for dinner.
My Happy Place
My happy place is a walk on the beach with family or anytime I am out for a paddle in a kayak.
Growing up it was all about extended family and time at my grandmother’s cottage and water. Lots of people (and dogs) around, lots of family traditions and competitions (like an annual family volleyball tournament).

More about me.
Fresh from a kayak and deep ocean swim. I love any time that I can be near the water or just outside in general. I love to snowshoe, hike, walk a beach, kayak, explore a city or… sit outside at a cafe or at a bonfire. I love being outside in any season…though in recent years, I am liking warmer temperatures a bit more.
Okay…we can do this.
