I am entering my 24th year as a kindergarten teacher at OKCS.  Altogether I have been teaching kindergarten for thirty four years.  What can I say, other than, I teach the best grade in the school?  Woohoo!!! : D

I graduated from University of Calgary with majors in Special Education, Elementary Physical education, psychology and early childhood education.

My husband Andrew and I have four grown children.  In January 2017, Andy went home to be with Lord. It's been a hard journey but I know in my heart ❤️ that God is my joy, strength and peace.  Our 4 children, all graduated from Olds Koinonia and love the Lord with their whole heart.  We have been blessed with seven grandchildren.  I spend as much time as I can with my children and their families.

My hobbies consist of reading, sewing, cooking, kayaking, swimming, biking and x country skiing and spending time with my grandchildren.  

Favorite scripture and thoughts:  Mark it down.  You will never go where God is not.  You may be transferred, enlisted, commissioned, reassigned, hospitalized but brand this truth in your heart... You can never go where God is not.  Jesus promised "I am with you always."  Matt. 28:20

Leave all your cares and anxieties  at the feet of the Lord and measureless grace will strengthen you. Ps. 55:22    Kindergarten is a place to play, dream and let go....enter at your own risk😊
