Here is a little information about me and how I arrived at Joliette Elementary School.
I have been teaching since 1998. I began my teaching career immediately after graduating from the University of Prince Edward Island. My teaching story began at Jaanimmarik School in Kuujjuaq, Quebec – an isolated Inuit village in Northern Quebec. I lived and worked there for four years and eventually met my future husband there. We decided to return ‘South’ to his hometown… and the rest is history.
Joliette Elementary and I were a perfect match – and I have been in love with this wonderful school, my amazing co-workers, students, and their families ever since – so much in love with JES that my children have and are currently enrolled here. There is no place I would rather them be.
My life outside of JES is pretty hectic! I am a mom of three children, one who is working for Air Canada and living on her own in Toronto, one who is in Grade 3 with me this year, and another who is in kindergarten. My life revolves around my family and now that our children are getting older, my husband and I are finding that all our extra-curricular activities revolve around the local arena and FaceTime! Our two youngest are enrolled in figure skating and hockey and we use FaceTime to keep in touch with our eldest while she travels the globe with her job. In my spare time, I love to read, scrapbook, take photos, and develop lessons and activities for others to use in their classrooms. Plus, this little blog has been a nice hobby for me to do during the school year. I enjoy letting the world see all the amazing things my students accomplish throughout their year.
I want to take this time to say thank you for coming by my little piece of the internet whether it is to watch your children progress throughout the year or to gain some ideas to use in your own classroom. It is my hope that this blog will bring a little sunshine to your day!
