I have been teaching at CTR for 25 years. I earned my Physical Education degree from the University of Victoria, BC. Teaching for CTR, we focus education on four pillars; Faith, learning, safety and caring, and stewardship. Today, I teach foods 7,8 and 9 and Physical Education. My parents provided my brothers and I with a childehood filled with memories that often was accompanied by amazing food while living; in Spain, Canary Islands and the UK. Additionally, my mother is a gourmet cook and my father belonged to the San Sebastian gastronomic society in the Basque Country Spain. So today I can whole heartedly say I am truly blessed to be teaching culinary arts, a passion instilled to me as child. I focus our students to prepare whole food using basic kitchen techniques while building life-long safe kitchen skills and routines.
