Working with children is something that brings me joy and a feeling of giving back. Children are our future and setting them up for success is what I want to be a part of. I also feel strongly about contributing to the well-being of children. I sadly lost a son at a young age, and appreciate all the people
that helped care for and nurture him along his journey. I want to do the same for others.
I grew up in Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis Valley. After living in New Brunswick, Ontario, and then the United States for 20 years, we settled back in Nova Scotia. I completed my bachelor of science at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario. I stayed at home to look after our children when they were young (including caring for our special needs son). I now have two grown children living away and attending university. In my free time, I enjoy travelling to visit them and spending time with my extended family and friends.
What I love about this job, is that I get to work one-on-one with children. I get to see reading and math successes before my eyes. Seeing a child’s eyes light up when they read a word they couldn’t read before, or hear them read passages fluently is rewarding. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work alongside your child and helping them see reading and math in a new way.
