Religious Education

Academic Interests

I have appreciated the partnership between Edmonton Catholic Schools and Newman Theological College. For me as the Director of Religious Education, it has been a marriage between my love of the Church and my vocation of teacher. It has been an exciting seven years where I have learned much about academia, as well as myself personally. It has been a privilege to work alongside the many teachers who work full time, have families, and yet still find time to study towards their Master of Religious Education. My contract continues until 2020, during which I want to continue the good work of the MRE as well as develop a strong online program as well.
