Researched informed practice.
Our Aurora Academic Charter School teaching and learning team is actively engaged in research and evidence to inform policy and practice. We publish our school-based and collaborative action research projects on our school website to allow for sharing, dissemination, and use of our research with colleagues and stakeholders from local to international. Our research is focused on improving student learning success and achievement.
Our research partners include the University of Alberta, Simon Fraser University, the University of Calgary, Alberta Education, Alberta Teachers’ Association, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and numerous school divisions and universities/faculties.
As a collaborative and generative teaching and learning community, we appreciate your engagement with our research-informed and evidence-based learning team and stakeholders.

Learning, research and innovation have long been a passion of mine. These passions were further pursued in my undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Alberta with a focus on research, science and technology, leadership and innovation. I was so fortunate to have exemplary graduate advisors, Dr. Michael Szabo for my Master's Degree and Theoretical Physicist Dr. Wytze Brouwer for my Doctor in Education.
As a teacher, administrator, and researcher I have been fortunate to work with so many inspiring people and continue a life-long journey of education and innovation. Along with research and writing, I enjoy hiking and biking with my family and friends. It is an honour working with the fabulous Aurora students, parents, staff, and community stakeholders.
