←Back to I Believe…(Philosophy)

I believe that students should see themselves as global citizens.
When students have a relationship with nature and therefore a connection to the wider world, they will become compassionate about caring for the Earth and supporting a sustainable future.



Professional Development


Connections to nature in my own life are what inspire me to conserve, recycle, and go outside!  Climbing the May Tree in the backyard, hiking, canoeing and swimming in the Qu’Appelle Valley, and tree planting in Northern BC are just a few ways that I connect with nature in my own life.  I have learned so much from the environment.


Helping students really get to know air, water, soil, and how they connect us all is how students learn to practice empathy when thinking about pollution and conservation.
