Key Roles

A little bit about me:

I am one of the grade 7 teachers here at Fox Run.  I started teaching in 1995 at CP Blakely School (grade 6) then moved over to Fox Run initially with the grade 6'ers when the school was first built.  That makes me one of the few remaining 'Fox Run Originals'

I was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare Country, but moved around England a lot as part of a military family.  At 16, I left high school to join the British Army as an apprentice in the aircraft maintenance program.   

Before coming to teaching, I was an airplane mechanic/technician/engineer; the job title was always changing.  I began with fixing jet engined helicopters with the British military then immigrated to Canada.  Once here, I lived in Regina and worked at the airport before moving to Red Deer and working at the regional airport near Penhold, on Cessna and Piper airplanes.

At present, I live in Red Deer with my two daughter and one son-in-law.  My youngest daughter, Taylor, is newly married and working at a chiropractor's office and for a local radio station.  My eldest daughter, Racquel, has now earned her teaching degree and is teaching the grade 7 French immersion program here at Fox Run.
