Dana Merrigan - Range Lake North School

This is Dana's sixth year with Yellowknife Education District No. 1 and she's happy to be returning to Range Lake North School to teach music and band. Dana was born in Newfoundland and lived most of her school years in the town of Stephenville on the island's west coast.  After graduating from Acadia University with a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Education, she worked as a teacher in both Halifax and Ottawa before moving to Yellowknife in 2010. Outside of school she co-directs the Fireweed Children's Chorus and spends time with her husband and two children who love building lego and cooking!
