Hello, my name is Kara Fidelack. I am currently in my third 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 honoured to get to be the first formal teacher that my students experience on their educational journey. I also have the opportunity to take on a new role in this, my third, year of teaching: when I am not teaching Pre-K, I get to spend the other half of my job sharing a Grade 1 homeroom with a wonderful colleague! I am so excited for this new adventure and to be based in the early years full-time!
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 begin my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education through the University of British Columbia in September 2018.
In a nutshell, I am a small town Saskatchewan girl who loves dogs, chocolate, yoga, 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!
