How did you end up at BCA? I was a college student at Briercrest and had big hopes of working here at the high school. It’s a very long story, but one where God opened doors and showed me that this is where I teach. I’ll have to tell you about it in person sometime, as it’s a pretty good story!

What do you teach at BCA? I am an ELA and Visual Arts teacher.

How long have you taught at BCA? I started teaching here in 2007, but have occasionally gone missing (aka left for maternity leaves).

What is your favorite memory about your job at BCA? There have been so many great memories over the years that I don’t even know where to start. As cheesy as it sounds, there is nothing I love more than visiting with students after class and actually getting to know them as people. I think teenagers are the best. I love laughing with them and getting to know them on a deeper level.

What do you believe is the most important thing about your job? 1. I think it’s very important to teach the subject matter and develop the students’ skills. 2. To help students become functioning, contributing citizens in society. 3. But above those two important things, I think the best thing I can do is show unconditional love and create a safe place for students to grow in their faith.

How have you seen students' lives changed as they encounter God at BCA? Students are supported here when they choose the right, moral way to live. When they say ‘no’ to the tempting things the world has to offer, they have a group of friends with them encouraging them to do the right thing. That’s not a normal experience for teenagers! They don’t feel the same amount of negative peer pressure here. I think this really helps develop a strong foundation before heading into post-secondary education and life after high school.
