About

Welcome to my blog!  I am a teacher in rural Saskatchewan, Canada.  In my career, I have also taught in British Columbia and Alberta, at every level from kindergarten to grade 8.  I am currently teaching both kindergarten and grade 7/8 social studies and English language arts.

I have a wonderful, supportive husband and three fabulous kids.  It’s a constant balancing act to not let teaching consume me so that I miss time with them.

George Couros’ book, The Innovator’s Mindset, and his tweets have encouraged me to take the “leap” into using a blog to reflect on my work as an educator.  Look out though – I have a passion for world war history and genealogy, and those topics may show up here, too.
