My name is Mariette Anderson and I live in Gravelbourg an hour southwest of Moose Jaw. I have just completed my 2nd year of Pre-k to Grade 5 and I am looking forward to completing my degree so that I can get back to work. I am a wife and the mother of a 2o year old son who is attending the U of A in Edmonton. I am on my third career and becoming a teacher was not something I pictured myself doing when I was younger. I discovered this passion when I accepted a teacher’s aide position. Eventually, I decided to pursue a degree in education, challenging and pushing me out of my comfort zone. I completed my first year through the distance program in order to continue to working and to be home for my son until he left for university.
This spring I have accepted a part-time teaching position at École Secondaire Collège Mathieu and École Beau Soleil. I am trying to apply everything that I have learned this last year into my teaching and I am looking foward to seeing what I can apply from this class as well. Technology is very challenging and I am hoping that I can broaden my knowledge in ways that will enhance my students’ learning experience.
I enjoy knitting, gardening and doing home renovations, all of which I have had little time to do in the last few years.
