Hello, my name is Kara Fidelack (Fi-DELL-lick). I am currently in my second year of teaching at Hudson Bay Community School, in the small town of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan. I am lucky enough to get to work with our youngest learners, as a teacher of 3 and 4 year olds in the Pre-Kindergarten program. It is a wonderful world full of imagination, play, and smiles, which I absolutely love! Early Childhood Education is truly my passion, and I am honored to get to be the first formal teacher that my students experience on their educational journey. I also have the opportunity to teach a variety of other grades and subjects, including Kindergarten, and Grades 4, 5, and 6. Being new to teaching (and Hudson Bay), working with this wide array of students has allowed me to get to know the school population much better since I moved here and became part of the community.
While growing up in the small town of Watrous, SK, teaching was always my chosen career path and vocation. From spending time with young children when my mother ran a childcare service out of our home, to being a tutor, to volunteering with and working for many different groups and programs, I had many opportunities to solidify my post-secondary choice of pursuing a degree in Education. After graduating from high school, I was accepted into the phenomenal Faculty of Education at the University of Regina, where I continued to grow as a future teacher. After convocating in April of 2016, I began my first year of teaching at HBCS for the 2016-17 school year. I look forward to continuing my educational journey, as I hope to pursue my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education through the University of British Columbia.
In a nutshell, I am a small town Saskatchewan girl who loves dogs, chocolate, music (I play guitar and sing), curling up with a good book, the great outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends. If you think we could be educational colleagues, please drop me a line – I love to expand my PLN online and in real life!
