I taught high school mathematics for from 1992 to 2020 with Edmonton Public Schools and participated in action research while in the classroom looking at topics such as proving, visual reasoning, online education, and inquiry-based instruction. My graduate work (1997-2000) revolved around polynomial mathematics using hand-made manipulatives to bridge the learning from concrete to pictorial to symbolic. In my last years in the classroom, I taught a small group of student survivors of trauma in a school whose population was largely indigenous. I retired in 2020 to pursue reconciliation and climate justice. I currently teach part time with the U of A in Secondary Education and run a vacation rental which focuses on sustainable practices. I have six pets and I play the ukulele as well as can be expected.
