Twenty years ago I began my career as a secondary school educator. I went on to pursue graduate degrees and after a decade moved into the realm of higher education. For the next ten years I bridged those two worlds, teaching Faculty of Education pre-service teachers, followed by years spent supporting student success and “Learning to 18” initiatives on college campuses. My doctoral work focused on educational place-making that was lived out by detained youth, their detention center staff and teachers. Since that time my writing and research interests have expanded to include critical pedagogies of care and narrative inquiry, with a focus on both learner and educator engagement. That focus has extended into curriculum design and program planning for arts-based and alternative learning environments. My expertise in relational teaching and narrative reframing is shared through a weekly newsletter and the Reframeablespodcast.
