Welcome to Grade Six!
Dear Parents and Families,
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful summer. I want to extend to you and your child, my warmest welcome into our classroom. My name is Lisa Skinner and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am originally from a very small town called Biscay Bay in Newfoundland and I have been living in Fort McMurray for over 11 years. My family and I have made this town our home and we love it here. I have a son who is 13 years old and going to grade 9 this year. I graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland with a Bachelor of Education (Primary/Elementary) Degree. This is my 11th year teaching at Timberlea Public School and my third year teaching grade six. I am looking forward to working with you and your child throughout the academic year. My goal is to facilitate learning in an exciting and fun way.
If there are any questions that arise during the year, please do not hesitate to contact me. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you after school hours. Please write a note, email me or call the office to let me know of a convenient time to call or meet with you. I am looking forward to a great year!
