Bio

I began as an educator with my Bachelors of Education from the University of Alberta. In these short years I was privileged to work with many influential colleagues and professionals who have, and continue, to shape my practice. In my later years at the U of A I worked as a teaching assistant for the introductory EdTech course for U of A BEd students. I was able to develop content and was published in the course created textbook in 2010. Later that year I was chosen to represent the University as a student delegate to the end of cycle 4 Alberta Initiative for School Improvement Conference.

I moved on from University to work with the Rocky View School division at Bow Valley High School in Cochrane Alberta. As a young educator I was passionate about innovative technology in the learning environment and I continued to persue a greater depth of integrating technology into my 21st century classroom. In my two years at Bow Valley I was able to gain valuable experience in the 1-to-1 learning environment. I continued to experiment with the concept of the flipped and asynchronous learning environment by in my second year when I taught Calculus through multiple learning entry points. In my final semester I was the recipient of an innovative technology grant to purchase VEX robotics to integrate programming and problem solving into the CTS curriculum at Bow Valley.

In the fall of 2012 I began my continuing teaching contract at WG Murdoch School in Crossfield Alberta. Throughout this year I have had the privilege of mentoring staff and students with the technologically inspired educational environment. It has been a pleasure to use the diverse resources at my disposal to create a new and unique learning experience for my students.
