About

My entire teaching career has been dedicated to teaching for equity and social justice. This journey has been a process in learning and unlearning what it means to be a teacher in the context of our world today. Being a teacher is one of the most foundational aspects of who I am as a person. To me, being a teacher is founded upon building relationships and community with young people in order to work together to discover our world and how we can contribute to creating a more equitable and just society.



My teaching career has taken me from Windsor, Ontario to Halifax, Nova Scotia and now in Edmonton, Alberta. Teaching in various provinces has allowed me to see that although our provincial education systems slightly differ, the issues that face students are often the same. It is our responsibility as teachers to understand how the issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability and colonialism impact teaching and education.

Over the course of my career, I have primarily worked with youth who have not found success within the traditional school system. These students have taught me what it takes to really be a teacher in order to see the brilliance of all young people. Having the opportunity to learn alongside these students, particularly the students I've worked with in Inner City Edmonton, has been the gift of a lifetime.
