I am an educator who has worked and researched in numerous schools and school districts across British Columbia, Canada. My work passion is developing collaborative communities where adults and children alike care about improving the learning experience for all, and work together to create the conditions needed for this to occur (developing living systems learning communities).
My doctoral dissertation focused on learning communities (LCs) in schools and why LCs grow and develop in some communities while not in others. My masters thesis focused on schools/programs of choice and how motivating factors differ for parents when they make choices. I am currently interested in systems change, with the purpose of helping to improve the learning experience for all.
I am the parent of three young adults – two recently finished university, and one at the beginning of her university journey.
