About Me

A bit about me:

My roots are in Coaldale and I call it my hometown, but I currently live in Lethbridge.  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, 2017.  We are now expecting our first child in January 2019!  I have wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember, so this is a dream come true!  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.  

My Interests:

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 Two this year!
