Staff Spotlight - Eileen Erasmus

Eileen Erasmus - K'alemi Dene School

Eileen has been a part of the team at K'alemi Dene School for almost 20 years! We are very sad to see her leave at the end of October, but so excited for her upcoming adventures. Eileen dedicated her career to K’alemi Dene School and its students. She has taught almost every grade, but loves high school the most. Eileen’s greatest challenge and reward was growing the school's high school program. Slowly but surely she added grades and kept students at the school. It was in May 2010 when the first students graduated - a huge accomplishment for both the students and Eileen! Eileen has been awarded the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence and inducted into the NWT Education Hall of Fame. Students and staff really are fortunate to have worked with her. Good luck to you Eileen, we will miss you dearly!
