Hey everyone

Sorry for being a little late to the game here! My name is Julie and I am currently a TTOC for SD73. I just moved to Kamloops in the summer after being on Vancouver Island and in Vancouver for the last 10 years. I have taught many subjects but have spent the majority of my time over the last 6 years as a grade 6 teacher and vice-principal at an independent school in the lower mainland.

I completed my Masters in Educational Technology a few years back and that is when I became interested in the concept of online learning. It was not something that was offered at my last employment, but now that I have moved to Kamloops I am interested to learn more about how online learning is used in this district and in others. 

In my free time my husband and I are keeping busy checking out the city and enjoying all this beautiful weather as we are used to rain, rain and more rain coming from the coast. We are also expecting our first child so that is keeping us very busy with preparing for little one to come!

Looking forward to working with everyone!
