Teachers - Grade 1
A bit about me:
I consider my hometown to be Coaldale. I moved to Coaldale when I was in Grade 4 and lived there until I graduated the University of Lethbridge and moved out on my own. I love the friendly nature and cozy feeling a small town offers.
My family means the world to me! I love being a wife to my amazing husband, Troy. We got married on June 21st, which was our fourth anniversary. Besides being a wife, my favorite title is Auntie. I am the incredibly proud auntie to three amazing kids: Emily, Dustin and Brenden. My sister and I are 11 months apart and have been close our whole lives and I am so glad that I am able to have a close relationship to her kids. I am also the proud big sister to my brother who is 7 years younger than me.
While we were dating, my husband converted me to an Oilers fan! I enjoy watching hockey and have seen the Oilers play 3 times. I also enjoy going to Lethbridge Hurricanes games. My other interests include camping (in a tent), baking (gluten-free things since I have Celiac), playing board games with friends, going to concerts, and of course teaching.
I started teaching at Dr. Hamman in 2011 and have taught a wide variety of grades and subjects since then. I love being a part of the Dr. Hamman family and am looking forward to teaching Grade One this year!
