About me

Greetings parents and students! 

Please visit my page, as it contains important information for you.  Check out the fun learning activities by clicking on the "Links" tab.

A little about me:

I was born and raised in a small community on the Southern Shore,- Trepassey.  I have been working at Cowan Heights for fourteen years and I also spent time teaching in Trepassey and Catalina. 

I love to spend time with my family and friends.  I have a puppy named Rosie.  She keeps me busy outside of school. 

I really enjoy spending time with my students and watching them learn new things. They often teach me new things, too!
