Hi! My name is Darlene Galicia but most of the kids call me Ms. G. This is at least my 100th year of teaching. Time goes by very quickly when a person is having so much fun! I began my teaching career many years ago and have worked at a variety of schools in southern Alberta. I came to Lakie in 2003 when the school opened. This year, I am responsible for Social Studies and Language Arts to 6E & 6F. I have developed and teach the exploratory options called Treasure Chest and Reel vs Real. Learning and achieving are always an adventure for both me and my students..
I believe in developing and teaching the whole child. Along with the academics, I like to develop lifelong learning and social skills. A simple little thank you can mean a lot, a wee bit of humor or a smile can always brighten someone’s day. Every child is a gift that needs to feel special and loved!
