This will be my seventh summer with Shad (4 awesome Julys at Shad Waterloo, and 2 fabulous Julys online with the Rigel and Waterloo campuses), and I am so hyped to jump into the community we will build together this summer. Outside of July, I am an elementary school teacher with a BEd from Niagara University. In my undergrad I studied Sexuality, Marriage and Family Studies at UWaterloo, with minors in Peace and Conflict Studies and English Literature; with this intersection of degrees I am always keen to talk and learn about anti-oppression, social justice, and how we can create more inclusive and social justice-informed classrooms. I’m also passionate about superheroes, figure skating, Jane Austen, dogs, musicals, mental health and more. I’d love to talk with you about any of these things, and about the things that excite you! Can’t wait for the month we have ahead.
