What do you do at RRLS?
I was a Learning Specialist for many years, then transitioned to Workshop Coordinator, Associate Director of Education, and finally, Director of Outreach. My role now is to connect with parents and explain our services to them, and how we can help their child succeed.

Why did you become a teacher?
I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience success and to work to their full potential because, “Kids do well if they can.” – Ross Green

How would your students describe you?
My students would say that I have a passion for boosting the skill, confidence, and self-esteem of students with varying learning styles.

What’s your favourite thing about working at RRLS?
I feel honoured and privileged to be a part of a community of professionals that are passionate about giving children the skills they need to feel good about themselves and to succeed.

What’s your favourite way to spend an afternoon?
I enjoy exploring shops, cafes, and restaurants around Toronto, watching live music, and spending time with friends and family.
