Principal & presently 40% teacher in Grade 5 & 6

Originally, my goal in teaching was to increase awareness of environmental issues, and as I grew to know Christ, my goal became giving children the opportunity to respond to the good news of Jesus Christ and to grow in Him. Research in both Canada and the States indicates that persistence in the faith increase with a Christian school education. We truly educate both for today and for eternity. I became a Christ follower shortly after arriving at Western University in London.  I was raised in Burlington, worked in theatre and at a Hamilton steel mill, and completed an Honours Zoology Degree, as well as my B.Ed/OCT. I was discipled through the Navigators ministry at Western. I have additional qualifications in Special Education - Intellectually Gifted and in French.

It is a joy to serve together with the devoted and Spirit-led team of staff members we have at Orillia Christian School. Our students are energetic and eager learners, and our community is warm and encouraging. We are a bunch of imperfect human beings, but sometimes this is a little slice of heaven.
