I'm thrilled to introduce myself as the Grade 6 teacher at Lamont Elementary. Over the past 23 years, I have had the privilege of teaching students in ECS through grade 9. Although this is only my second year with grade 6, I am confident it will be another amazing year, as Lamont Elementary is a remarkable school!

I began my career a continent away in rural Japan, before landing in Prairie Land Regional School Division, where I had the opportunity to teach for over 20 years, in a variety of schools and positions. After relocating to Fort Saskatchewan, I was blessed to start my journey with Elk Island Public Schools at Win Ferguson Elementary. After a fantastic year in grade 1, I was blessed again, when presented with the opportunity to return to my "rural roots" here in Lamont!  

A dear friend posted, "The meaning of life it to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away." This resonated with me as I am never happier than when I am in a classroom surrounded by children. I look forward to a memorable 2018-2019 school year! 

Communication/Remind

Experience has taught me that communication is key to a successful school year. Therefore, I encourage you to contact me should you ever have a question or concern. You are welcome to email me at tammy.marks@eips.ca or call me at the school at 780-895-2269.

In addition, our class uses Remind to allow you to receive text messages or email notifications about homework or important class events. On your iPhone or Android phone, open your web browser and go to the following link: rmd.at/4823dd If you don't have a smartphone, to get text notifications, you can text the message @4823dd to the number (418) 800-7587. Remember, this is optional, as students will also be using their agendas.
