My name is Rebecca Kennedy and I am delighted to be teaching Grade 1 at École J.H. Sissons this year! This summer I drove across Canada from my hometown in St. John’s, Newfoundland with my husband and our beagle. Yellowknife is beautiful and I feel blessed to be living and working here. I spent the past two years working as a substitute teacher in St. John’s in English, French Immersion, and Intensive Core French classrooms. This school year is a special one for me because for the first time I have my own group of students.

I have lots of hobbies including hiking and running, cooking and eating, and reading. I am new to yoga, skating and curling and love all three! I’m also interested in learning to knit and sew.

I’m looking forward to a year full of hard-work, learning, and fun!
