I grew up on a farm near a small town called St. Gregor, Saskatchewan. I graduated in 2016 from Annaheim School with a class of eight students, all of which I grew up with my whole life. I am the oldest of three children. While growing up I kept very active. I was heavily involved in competitive gymnastics since the age of 4 and participate in many different school sports such as cross country, volleyball, and track and field. After I stopped training for gymnastics I became a coach working with young girls and boys on the beginner competitive team. Track and field is where my passion lies now.
I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to continue my love for track and field here at University of Regina competing in the pentathlon. I am in my second year studying Education at the University of Regina in secondary math and inclusive education. So far I have only had the opportunity to be in the classroom with my field placement in ECS 100. Another opportunity I had was in Kin 120 where we were paired up with an elementary student who had a disability. Together we worked to develop a plan to improve or gain skills with sport and recreation.
In the future I want to continue my studies in both math and inclusive ed. With this I hope to find many different volunteering opportunities that will give me more experience working with children, especially those who may have a disability.
