About Me

Hi there, and welcome to my biography page.  

This is now that start of my twentieth year of being a teacher, and I am still excited to teach and feel I still have so much to learn in helping children do their best at reaching their full potential.  

I was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland and joined the British Army when I was 16.  After serving for five years in the Queens Own Highlanders, I moved to Canada and married my sweetheart.   I attended Medicine Hat College and then the University of Calgary where I graduated in 1997 and began my teaching career.

My first teaching job was at Vauxhall Elementary school where I taught for four years.  In 2001 I transferred to Dr. Hamman School and have been teaching here since then.  I have mainly taught grade five and physical education from kindergarten up to grade five.  I currently teach one of the grade five homeroom classes along with Miss Craig and I am also the vice-principal.

I have two children who once attended Dr. Hamman School and whom I was fortunate enough to teach.  I enjoy doing triathlons, trying to play competitive soccer, staying active and being outdoors.  I am a huge fan of football, especially Scottish football and support Hibernian Football Club from Edinburgh. I joined a book club about a year ago and have thoroughly enjoyed taking more time to read a wider variety books.  I am a cat lover,and have two cats at home.  I also try to play the bagpipes, which scares my cats and probably upsets my neighbours.
