A list of my favourite things:

  • my son, the Rascal
  • teaching Shakespeare, especially Much Ado About Nothing!
  • coffee
  • creative writing, especially poetry
  • good, dark chocolate
  • Canada - we drove to all 10 provinces the summer of 2019! 22,000 km!!
  • reading, especially mysteries, historical fiction, and crime fiction
  • Crochet - making things with yarn and a hook relaxes me
  • Genealogy - I have been working on different branches of my family tree for over 20 years! Recently, we managed to find some first- and second-cousins of my parents.
  • Google (duh!)
  • ITLAP Day! (September 19, every year)
  • Star Wars (& May 4 every year - which episode will you watch?)
  • Geek/Towel Day - May 25 - Yes, my towel is with me...
  • have I mentioned coffee or chocolate? They are even better together!
I have been teaching in SD33 since 1998 (was in Delta before that). I rejoined the staff at MSMS in September of 2005 after five years teaching En10, En11, and SS10 at SSS. I have taught Grades 7, 8, and 9 here at MSMS (mostly Grade 8 English and Socials).
