Born in Toronto Ontario, and raised in Northwest British Columbia in Kitimat, I later attended U.B.C. and completed my BA at Queens University in Kingston Ontario. I obtained my teaching credential from Bethany University in Santa Cruz, California, as well as my Directors permit for Early Childhood Education from Cabrillo College. Since then I have completed two Masters, one in Reading and Literacy and the other in Teaching Adults in Early Childhood Education. Currently I am embarking on my Doctorate in Early Childhood Education, and following where my passion leads me.
