Hello, my name is Kara Fidelack. I am currently in my seventh year of teaching in small town 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 honoured to get to be the first formal teacher that my students experience on their educational journey. I also have the opportunity to spend the other half of my job sharing a Grade 1 classroom with a wonderful colleague!
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 completed my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education through the University of British Columbia in April 2021, and am currently working towards my second Master’s through my alma mater, U of R.
In a nutshell, I am a small town Saskatchewan girl who loves being a dog mom, eating chocolate, practicing yoga, listening and making music (I play guitar and sing), traveling, 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!
I am so glad to have you join me on my journey!
