Biography

I am currently the K-2 Autism Teacher here at Hughes Elementary School.  Each year brings new discoveries and achievements in educating our students.  It is my privilege to be able to work with your children.  I have been teaching in the Autism Program for six years.  I have experience working with children with Autism for 9 years.  I can truly say that I have found my passion, this is where my heart is!

I began my teaching career in 1998 when I graduated from Ottawa University with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  I decided a year after being in the classroom that I wanted to stay home to raise my four children.  When I returned to Education, I was an Instructional Assistant in a Special Education Preschool.  I was also a Substitute Teacher working in an Autism classroom.  As a second income, I provided Habilitation and Respite to children with Autism. I teach children with Autism, but they are also teaching me, everyday I am learning from them.

I believe that each child brings their own unique talents, personalities, and experiences into the classroom.  I will be working very hard to establish our classroom as a happy, challenging, comfortable and safe environment where we can all do our personal best.  I look forward to learning with your child and sharing curriculum with them.  In order to have success in the classroom, we focus on consistency, sticking to a schedule, reinforcing positive behaviors and creating a classroom safety zone.

In my "free-time", I enjoy spending time with my four children, two girls and two boys.  I like to support them in their activities, which include gymnastics and baseball.  They definitely keep me busy when I am not in the classroom.

I believe that to give your child the best opportunity for success in their education, Communication is the key!  Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.  I am eager and happy to be teaching your children. 

Together we can make this a great experience for your child!
