Teachers - Elementary - Grade 6
My name is Kim Klath and I am originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I have a Bachelor of Education Degree from the University of Saskatchewan with a major in English Language Arts and a minor in Physical Education.
I started my teaching career in rural Saskatchewan and enjoyed teaching in a Grade 5/6 classroom for a while. After I spent a few years teaching in the regular classroom, I found that I had an interest in Special Education. At that point in my career I decided to pursue additional education in order to become a Certified Speical Education teacher in Saskatchewan. After I received my Special Education credentials, I moved into the role of a Resource Room Teacher in a rural K-12 school setting in Saskatchewan . I truly enjoyed the K-12 setting and the opportunities it provided me to interact with students of all ages. After that rural post, I worked for Saskatoon Public School Division as a Resource Room Teacher and also as a Behaviour Classroom Teacher.
My husband and I moved to Fort McMurray in 2010. I was excited to move to this bustling community and felt the need to experience life as an Oilsands employee working on site. I worked for a contractor on the Syncrude Mildred Lake site as a part of the Safety department for that company. It provided me with the opportunity to experience shift work, very early mornings and long drives to and from work.
After that, I landed at Westview and I couldn't be happier! Of the 7 schools I have worked in over the course of my career, Westview staff is by far the most friendly, inviting and caring! I enjoy coming to work everyday with my Westview family!
Now, the part you really want to know.... I love to travel and am looking forward to a trip to Dubai, UAE next month! I make humour a huge part of my everyday life because I truly believe laughter is the best medicine. Acting and involvement in Drama has always been a passion of mine. I am looking forward to directing Westview's Musical Production of "The Trial of the Big, Bad Wolf" in April. I believe spending time with family and friends is the key to a happy life. That being said, Westview is the best place for me because I get to work with my Fort McMurray family and friends everyday!
