I am happy to be teaching at Vimy Ridge Academy, where I can combine two of my passions, teaching and sports. I have two degrees from the University of Alberta, a B.A. and a B.Ed, as well as various coaching qualifications. I have spent most of my life in Edmonton and am happy to be living and raising a family in what I consider my hometown. I have been lucky enough to travel extensively which I feel adds to my teaching of social studies. Sports have been very good to me, allowing me to travel and push myself, testing my limits. I am happy to be giving back to something that has given me so much.
