Shelby Stratechuk of Springside joined the teaching staff at Victoria School this fall.
“This is my first posting as a teacher,” she said. “I will be here until mid-November teaching the Grade 2 class and covering for Rebecca Gibbs.”
Stratechuk received her Bachelor of Education degree from FNU (First Nations University) at Regina in 2018 and was on the Dean’s List. She lives on a farm with her boyfriend who farms near Springside, and enjoys sports, outdoor activities and camping.
Beth Dix will be working as an EA (educational assistant) at Victoria School. A single mother of four children, she had previously worked as a receptionist at Pheobe’s Beauty Parlor in Kamsack.
Dix has lived in Kamsack for most of her life and is an active member of the Kamsack Players Drama Club and the Playhouse Theatre board.
Her daughter Casey is now 20 and works at the Eaglestone Lodge in Kamsack; son Donovan is 15 and in Grade 10 at KCI (Kamsack Comprehensive Institute); son Grayson is seven and in Grade 2, and son Riley is six and in Grade 1, both at Victoria School.
