a bit about me:

I am a beginning teacher with a specialization in English. My first degree is from Mount Royal University and it is a BA in English with a minor in Film Studies. I have a profound love of education as it allows me to use my creativity and inspire it in students. I like instilling confidence in learners as they develop and appreciate their ability to learn, and I enjoy getting to know the people around me. I live in Calgary, Alberta with my long-hair chihuahua named Foxy Lady. I like to read books, and binge-watch television series and movies in my spare time. :)
