Teachers - 8A
I was raised in Fort Smith, N.W.T. and completed high school at PWK High School in Fort Smith. After graduating from the U of A with a B.Ed. in 1986, I taught for two years in Fort Norman, N.W.T. (Tulita), Grades 2,3 & 4 and two years in Fort McPherson, N.W.T. (Tetl'it Zheh), Grades 5-9. I moved to Yellowknife and started teaching at Ecole William McDonald Middle School in 1990. I’ve taken maternity leave and other leaves totaling 4 years to be at home with my two daughters. Cynthia is now in 2nd year university and Jennifer attends grade eleven at Ecole Sir John Franklin High School. Other than teaching one year of at J.H.Sissons (1999/2000) my teaching career in Yellowknife has been at Ecole William McDonald Middle School. This is my 28th year at Yellowknife Education District #1, and my 32nd year in the teaching profession.
