Teachers - Grade 1
I am very excited to be joining the teaching team at Don Campbell Elementary. I have more than 25 years experience teaching grade one, with my past 17 years spent at Joseph Welsh Elementary, team teaching with Karen Wiltse. I love my job and the many rewards it offers. Karen and I work very closely together and strive to ensure a seamless transition between teachers mid week. We follow a Thursday to Wednesday rotation, ensuring the children see both of us each week. Strong communication and team planning are among our top priorities to help us provide the best learning environment possible for children.
I was born in Red Deer and have spent the majority of my life in this wonderful community. I am happily married and have a son and daughter who both attend University in Edmonton. Our family loves spending time together in the outdoors - biking, golfing and traveling. I am looking forward to meeting many new families this year and being a part of the amazing team at DCE!
