Hello! My name is Laura Fiddler and I am a third year teacher! I received my degree in Middle Years Education from the University of Regina in 2021. I grew up on a farm near Gull Lake, Saskatchewan which is where I attended school K – 12. I enjoy playing sports and exercising as well as, helping out on my farm, playing with my dog, and spending time with my family. I have always wanted to be a teacher and have over 10 teachers in my family so I guess you could say that rubbed off on me! I am passionate about creating a classroom where my students are engaged, free to be themselves, and are able to learn regardless of their differences.
I have gained experience in the classroom as a student teacher, an educational assistant, and a substitute teacher. My ECS 100 class included being placed in a grade 3/4/5 classroom at St. Katherines School in Regina which involved observing the teacher(s) as well as helping out within the classroom. I had my pre-internship at Regina Huda School which was interrupted in March 2020 by the COVID-19 pandemic making it not only an enriching educational experience, but an exciting one as well! I completed my internship at Sacred Heart School in Moose Jaw, SK in the fall of 2020 and learned more than I thought possible. It was an experience like no other and largely shaped who I am today as a person and an educator. My experience as an educational assistant and substitute teacher took place at All Saints Catholic School in Swift Current, SK. My experience as a classroom teacher in Grades 6 and 7 took place at ASCS and I am currently teaching grade 3/4 at St. Mary School in Moose Jaw.
With all that being said, I am very excited to continue my educational journey and see where it takes me!
