About Me

Welcome to Escuela Vista Grande! This will be my third year at Escuela Vista Grande as the vice principal!  I graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree in 1995 from the University of Alberta and returned to the University of Alberta to earn my Master of Education in 2015.   I have worked for Red Deer Public School District for 24 years and have worked at Hunting Hills High School,  our District Central Office and at Joseph Welsh Elementary.   

I have a love of languages that began at an early age.  My parents are immigrants from Portugal and I only learned to speak English once I started school.  Once in school, I enjoyed learning French and made French my minor in University.  When I began teaching, I studied Spanish and taught introductory Spanish at Hunting Hills High School for 10 years.  I enjoy traveling and visiting new places in the world with my husband Scott, my stepdaughter Alina and my son Lucas.  My language skills have come in handy many times!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!  I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
