Hi, I'm going to Uganda, Africa with the Canadian Teachers Federation's Project Overseas 2014. I'm traveling from Thompson, MB to Ottawa, ON on July 2 for team building, then on to Uganda on July 6. I grew up in Sudbury, ON. I went to Carleton University in Ottawa for my B.A. in English. Then, I went to University of Manitoba for my B.Ed. I worked overseas in Guatemala, CA at the Colegio Americano for 2 years. I went to South Korea next where I taught ESL. When I returned to Canada, I needed some recovery time so I went to Banff, AB. I met some great people there, and one very special person. I came to Thompson in 2001. I have been here since then teaching at RD Parker Collegiate (high school).
