Teachers - Junior High

Biography

I'm thrilled to be teaching Language Arts 8, Drama 8, and grade 9 K & E LA this year. Amazingly, this is my 26th year at R.F. Staples. Originally, I come from Athabasca. After graduating from Edwin Parr, I went directly to the U of A to obtain my teaching degree. I enjoy teaching at R.F. for several reasons. One reason is the similarity in size of school and community here with where I grew up as a student. Our school is large enough to provide lots of variety and different programs for students but also small enough to know the students and staff. My husband and I have one son. As a family we keep busy with a wide variety of outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, quadding, Skidooing, skiing, hiking, and travelling. It's going to be a terrific year!
