I was born and raised in the province of Newfoundland and thought I would never leave. However in 1995 my husband and I and our two young daughters made the difficult decision to move to Grande Cache, Alberta. Although we miss our families we have not regretted our decision. We have enjoyed living in this beautiful town and continue to visit our home province whenever possible.

Shortly after arriving in Grande Cache I heard of plans for Grande Yellowhead to start a Christian school option. I was very excited to hear this because I had attended and taught in a Christian school in Newfoundland. I taught at Sheldon Coates for two years and then I was hired to help start the SonRise Christian Program. It was a job that required a lot of hard work and dedication. SonRise is in our 19th year and every day I feel privileged to be teaching here and to be involved in the lives of such wonderful children.
