I am available to lend a hand when students need it, an ear when they want someone to listen, or a shoulder to cry on when they think they won’t make it through.
a strong believer of life-long learning having earned most of my
education later in life. I returned to school after working at Safeway

Technology and as a Microsoft Office Specialist. At my graduation
ceremony, I was awarded the Governor General's Medal for Academic
