Hello! My name is Rachelle Mercredi I am new to NJ Macpherson School but not new to teaching. I began my work as a teacher in YK1 in 2012 and have worked primarily in early elementary grades at Range Lake North School. This year I am working half time as a teacher in Grades 1,2,3 Montessori. I have chosen to work half time this year to have a little more time at home with my young children. I am from Banff, Alberta and studied at the University of Calgary. I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and another in Education. I love travelling and learning about different cultures. I come from a multicultural home and speak both Spanish and German. I have a passion for inquiry based, hands on learning and love to foster curiosity and wonder in all the students I teach. I am very much looking forward to seeing what this year has in store!
