I believe that as educators, we are given the wonderful, yet challenging task of calling others forth to see their own uniqueness and goodness and to realize their potential in an ever-changing world.   I also believe that the role of an educator in our times is to be a living and vibrant witness to the presence of learning opportunities in our lives.  This cannot be done in isolation.  I continually work with and learn from others within my community.  As a strong believer in service, I volunteer with Girl Guides of Canada and also as a social media marketer for a youth orchestra. To develop my mind I have taken up piano,  to keep in shape I race sailboats, and to keep my spirit grounded,  I kayak on quiet waterways with my dog, Chance.
