About Me

I’ve lived my whole life in Bonnyville other than the time it took me to get my Bachelor of Education. I attended both Augustana University and the University of Alberta to finish my degree with a major in elementary education and a minor in educational psychology. I taught Kindergarten here at Duclos for 2 years before taking time off to raise my family. I returned to teaching 3 years ago and last year taught Grade 1 for Mrs. Strzepek who had her first baby! Mrs. Strzepek is cherishing her time with her new addition but may return in March 2018.

I live on an acreage with my husband and our 4 children. My oldest will be in Grade 6 this year and attends H.E. Bourgoin. My other children all attend Duclos School and will be in Grades 4, 3 and 1. We also have 2 lab puppies (Nyxi and Zirna) and 2 kittens (Lightning and Storm).  As a family we enjoy being outside as much as possible. In the winter we enjoy skiing, tobogganing and snowmobiling. During the summer we almost live at the lake camping, boating, fishing and doing water sports.
