I am a social studies teacher at Vista Virtual School. Currently, I am teaching Social Studies 30-1 and Social Studies 30-2. I have worked with Vista Virtual School for nine years.
I like working directly with students and helping them succeed and get through school. I especially get great satisfaction in helping students who have been “failed” by the system and need a second chance. Helping them pass my courses makes me feel great! I have always really enjoyed history, politics, and other social studies related fields, so teaching social studies is enjoyable.
In my world, there are two seasons—bike season and hockey season—and the best time of year is when they overlap. I love riding my bike around Edmonton, especially in the river valley and I ride to work as soon as the roads are clear. I don’t play hockey, but I’m a big Oilers fan. I also read a lot—both fiction and non-fiction. I also really like birds and have a budgie named Kirby.
