My name is Andrea Kirby, and I will be joining the N.J. team this fall as a grade 3 teacher. I officially moved to Yellowknife from Ontario in the summer of 2016 with my husband, daughter and dog. I had spent several summers in Yellowknife prior to our move, but experienced my first winter season last year (a bit colder than what I was use to in Ontario).
I have been teaching since 2010, and have taught grades 3 to 8. I love teaching children and being active! When I’m not in the classroom you can usually find me walking or hiking outdoors with my family, or taking in a dance class. I enjoy being out on the water, and I canoed from Minto to Dawson City, Yukon this summer with three good friends.
I am so excited to be joining the N.J. Macpherson School, and I look forward to getting to know the school community.
