About Me

I am the inclusion coach for Ecole Lacombe Junior High School.  In my position, I strive to integrate children with academic, physical and social challenges into the mainstream classroom. Working together with the support of the classroom teacher, I help to establish clear objectives, develop appropriate learning strategies, and educate and inform teachers and parents of plans, objectives and progress as it relates to their child.  As an inclusion coach, it is my privilege to work with students and their teachers to help them find success on their educational journeys.  

For a little personal background on myself,  my teaching responsibilities have included Grade 4-Grade 12 with a strong focus on the humanities and special education.  Before I was a teacher, I was an Educational Assistant who worked with students with severe disabilities.  I have held the position of Program Director for the Learning Disability Association of Alberta Red Deer Chapter and have recently completed a  University Diploma on Inclusive Education through Athabasca University.  I have been happily married for 20 years and have a daughter who jhas started her journey into post seondary education.   

I look forward to many great discussions!
