Carla is a Grade 1/2 teacher at Dunstable School and has been with Pembina Hills for over 14 years.
Carla’s dedication to student success is second to none. Day in and day out, she strives to connect with each of her students in order for them to reach their full and utmost potential. She is always evolving as a professional and is constantly bringing new ideas and strategies to her already robust classroom routines.
Carla is always willing to go above and beyond—she has been instrumental in developing a school-wide reading program, sensory room and various other school based programs and activities. Above all, her students always come first. They are greeted with a friendly smile in the morning and are always eager to learn something new in her classroom, a true testament to the engaging and inclusive community that she creates. She is always thinking outside of the box and finds ways to connect with even the most challenging of students.
On top of all of this, she is the epitome of a team player and is always willing to do what is in the best interest of those around her before herself. Most importantly though, she makes Dunstable School Community a better place and enriches the lives of her students in ways that stretch far beyond the classroom.
