My name is Arlene and I am a fifth grade teacher in Calgary, Alberta.  I have been teaching for 6 1/2 years and in that time I have had the privilege of working with all elementary grades from K-6.  I started my career in Brisbane, Australia where I taught for 2 years and the rest of the time I have spent in Calgary.  This is my fifth and final EDDL course, I have enjoyed all of them so far but am looking forward to completing the program.  I am also looking forward to meeting all of you.
