- Position: Teacher
For the past 4.5 years I have been attending college/university, working towards becoming a teacher.
Enrollment in the ACHOTE program, through Simon Fraser University and Northern Lights College allowed me to complete the majority of my post secondary education, while remaining in my hometown of Fort St. John.
I have been fortunate enough for the past two semesters of my university education (May-December 2010) to receive funding and support from the Metis Nation BC. This opportunity has allowed me to complete my teacher certification, and I am now fully qualified to teach in BC.
I completed both my teaching practicum's in School District #60 (Fort St. John). The first was in a grade 1 classroom and the second in a grade 2/3. I enjoyed this time immensely, which assures me that I have made a wise career choice.
I am currently working within the same school district as a teacher on call (TOC), and I look forward to obtaining a full time position in the future.
