About Me

Hi I’m Alyza! I was born and raised in Slave Lake but eventually made my way to Edmonton to pursue my career in teaching. Growing up in Slave Lake I worked at the local aquatic centre where my spark of interest in teaching originated through lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons; working with a variety of ages. 5 years later, a degree in education and my first year of teaching completed, I have happily made the decision to move back to my hometown. During my free time you can typically find me outdoors fishing, hiking or just sitting around a toasty campfire. My hobbies include anything art related or making handmade projects. I truly find happiness when learning, collaborating and exploring along with children and am ecstatic to be part of the St. Mary of the Lake team!
