Provincial Educator

About Me

Before joining SET-BC, I was an intermediate classroom teacher for 30 years in Vancouver. For four of these years, I was the district SMART Board support person, and this began my interest in mentoring other teachers. My interest in Ed Tech began with my MA thesis on the earliest of educational technology – the radio school broadcasts carried by the CBC in the mid 1900’s. As a classroom teacher, I know how hard it is to juggle the demands of so many different learning profiles. I have great respect for the risk-taking that’s necessary to explore the integration of technology in teaching. I am very excited to join this team of educators at SET-BC.

My Interests

I like taking long walks in Pacific Spirit Park, babying my sourdough starter, exploring Vancouver neighbourhoods and immersing myself in Scandinavian crime dramas on Netflix.
