I am a native of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. I completed my undergrad at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia with a Bachelor of Science Degree with a double major in Biology and Psychology and a minor in mathematics. From there, I went on to St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia where I received my B.Ed. in secondary science and mathematics. This will be my eighth year teaching math and science at JPII.
