I am very excited to be the grade 6 homeroom teacher for the 2021-2022 school year.  I will be teaching all of the grade 6 subjects, except Language Arts. Mrs. Wruk will be teaching the LA component. I look forward to a year of learning and growing through God’s love.

I started my education career at NPCS in the Junior High grades, teaching Science and CTF courses. I have been the grade 6 homeroom teacher since 2019. My husband, Egbert, and I have been living in Barrhead since 2003. Both Egbert and I were born and raised in South Africa. I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy at Stellenbosch University, South Africa and worked as a physiotherapist for 10 years. I then continued my studies at a later stage and graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Education degree. Egbert is a family physician at Barrhead Clinic. We are blessed with 3 children, Stephanie, Arend, and Karla. In our “spare” time, we enjoy reading, camping, hiking, golfing and watching our kids at their various sports events. It has been a blessing to be part of this school and the broader Christian community.
