Where do you live?

I live on a farm near Fairmont with my husband the my two handsome, sweet little boys.

Why did you become a teacher?

I became a teacher because I truly believe Family and Consumer Science teaches great life skills and valuable tools that we need to function as individuals and a society as a whole. It also allows school to be “fun” and have a creative outlet of many forms.

BlueSky allows me to really connect one on one with my students enabling them to reach their goals and succeed!

Why did you choose BlueSky?

I chose BlueSky because it was the perfect fit for what I was looking for professionally and personally. It allows me to work from home, which has always been appealing for me as well as advance professionally in my career. BlueSky allows me to really connect one on one with my students enabling them to reach their goals and succeed!

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

BlueSky is special because it gives students another option outside of the traditional school setting. BlueSky offers one on one help and allows students to really take control of their education and make it work for them.

What do you like to do when you're not teaching?

I like to spend time with my husband and sons doing fun family outings exploring zoos, parks, and having fun on our farm. I also have a huge passion for Interior Design, I enjoy decorating my house and of course, shopping!
