I am a teacher.
I have my BSc, BEd, and MEd. I’ve worked in the field of Education in a variety of capacities including as a classroom teacher in both Junior High and High School, a Curriculum Developer, as an Early Learning Coordinator overseeing the programs for and providing support to young children with developmental delays, and now as a sessional instructor in the Werklund School of Education at the University of Calgary.
I’ve been navigating the world of part-time and more flexible work since becoming a mom.
I realized that the options of going back to work full-time or being a stay at home mom weren’t for me and my family. I needed to find a place somewhere in between. I have had success finding amazing part-time and flexible work opportunities by putting myself out there, networking, hustling hard, thinking outside of the box, and telling anybody who will listen what my “ideal” job would be. My journey, with all of the challenges and successes, inspired me to create The Part-Time Jungle as a community of support for moms who work or who want to work part-time or more flexibly. Let’s navigate the adventure of “swinging motherhood and work” together!
