Key Roles

I teach primarily High School English and Social Studies at Hugh Sutherland School and have been employed at the school since 2012. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Saskatchewan and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta. 

Since coming to HSS I have become involved in the HSS High School Drama Club and would encourage all of my students to audition to join our group! Or, if you're not an actor, you can always support our group by helping as a backstage volunteer or by buying tickets to our amazing shows each spring! 

As a self-proclaimed "book worm" I consider myself very lucky because I get to read books as part of my job!  I love coming to school and helping my students discover the passion for reading and learning that I feel is so important. When I'm not at school, I love spending my time outside kayaking, hiking, or skiing (depending on the wonderful Alberta weather). 

Feel free to pop by my classroom and introduce yourself. I still consider myself very new to this school and community and am always looking forward to meeting members of the community.
