My name is Barbara and I look forward to meeting and working with all of your children at A Child First Preschool.

This will be my 10th year as a Preschool Teacher.  Before the preschool I worked at a group home as a youth counselor for 18 years, but decided a change was in order.   When the opportunity to teach preschool came, I was very excited to start a new chapter in my life.  I have my diploma in Child and Youth Care work from MRU which enables me to work with both small children up to teenagers.  In addition to my previous employment, I was very involved with my children’s activities by volunteering in their school and with their hockey and ringette teams.

I am originally from Calgary and my husband and I have lived in the community of Parkland for 15 years.  I have a daughter who is 17, a son who is 16 and another daughter who is 14 years old. Yep, three teenagers in the house!

I love to travel especially to the ocean and love my time working out and doing yoga as well as spending time with family and friends.

I very much enjoy spending my days with such great young, honest minds and love the uniqueness of each and every one of them.
