Joannie Gourde - Ecole J.H. Sissons

Born in the province of Québec, Joannie is coming to us from British Columbia, where she taught in elementary schools and worked as a support teacher. Her teaching career brought her all over the country. This year, she is one of the new program support teachers at Ecole J.H. Sissons. Joannie’s smile is contagious in the morning. She welcomes the students with happiness and is ready to engage in conversation to comfort them. Furthermore, Joannie works hard at making sure all students' needs are supported in the classroom. We hope that you will make Yellowknife your home for years to come!
