Teachers - Elementary - Grade 1
Allô! My name is Melanie Bourque. I will be one of the three Grade One homeroom teachers. I am originally from Nova Scotia, where I graduated from Université Sainte-Anne with an integrated Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Education degree. After completing my degree, I was able to work in my former elementary school as a substitute. The following year I took a position here in Yellowknife and this will be my third year at ÉJHSS.
When I am not at school, I enjoy staying active. I am looking forward to getting back to practicing karate and running. I also enjoy, camping, hiking or anything else that will get me outdoors! Other personal interests include cooking, reading as well as playing music or learning to play a new instrument.
I look forward to an amazing school year at ÉJHSS!
