My name is Shayla McRitchie and I am excited for another fabulous school year! I am a Grade 4 homeroom teacher. I started teaching at WES in 2010 as a Grade 6 teacher and the last few years I have been teaching in Grade 4! Here is a little background on me ... I graduated from Concordia University with an Elementary Education Degree and a background degree in Psychology. I grew up north of St. Albert surrounded by a loving family and many horses, a cat, dogs and pet rodents. By the time I was five years old, I had my cousins playing students while I played the teacher; I have always known I wanted to be teacher. Throughout high school and into university I followed my passion and volunteered in elementary classrooms. Although most of my work as a teacher has been in Grades 4 - 6, I have enjoyed working in various elementary schools with students from kindergarten to grade 6.
I encourage the my students and their parents to refer to my Teacher Page (on the Westlock Elementary homepage) for curriculm updates, newsletters, internet links and much more! I’m looking forward to another fantastic year at WES!
