Why are you passionate about girls education?
In a word: inspiration. Great women and their stories inspire future triumph. Girls inspire each other to engage in challenges and throughout each endeavour, they are also an encouragement to their tribe.

I have climbed to over 40 summits in the Rocky Mountains, worked as a ski patrol, and I also hope to one day complete my PhD.

What excites you about teaching?
I chose to teach for the variety that this vocation offered, but I have stayed in education because I am fascinated with the processes of learning.

What do you think the future of teaching looks like?
In a time when there is much speculation about whether future education will be in an entirely online platform, I believe that the future of teaching rests upon our relational practices which often happen inside the classroom. While online platforms can further facilitate more collaborative pedagogy, education needs to consider how to encourage student-driven practices.
