Miss Colgan

Hello, my name is MacKinnley Colgan. I am very excited to be teaching at A.E Bowers Elementary School this year! From the time I was in kindergarten I knew teaching was my calling. Since then every choice I made was to propel me towards my dream of becoming an Elementary Teacher. I graduated Concordia University of Edmonton with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in 2016 with a major of Sociology and a minor in French Language studies. I continued on to complete their Bachelor of Education After-Degree program in 2018. While I was in university, I worked as an in-home and community support worker for children with a diverse range of ages and abilities. These experiences taught me skills that I took into my grade 3 practicum which allowed me to teach to the needs and interests of the students within my class. Every child is unique and has the capabilities to reach their own version of success. I believe in creating a strong classroom community where every individual feels safe to take risks and knows that their unique perspective is valued. In our classroom we are a team. Through collaboration we are learning to develop skills and attributes that will propel us towards being successful global citizens. I grew up on a hobby farm near Fort Saskatchewan. I have been involved in many facets of the arts and I travel frequently. I believe that my many diverse life experiences will add to the many engaging activities planned for your child this year! I cannot wait to get to know your family as we become teammates on your child’s learning journey this year! Please check out our class twitter to see updates on our weekly activities! Stay tuned as our class will write an email home every Friday. Please don't hesitate to contact me via email if you have any questions, comments or concerns! mcolgan@rockyview.ab.ca
