Welcome to Grade 6

I'm thrilled to introduce myself as one of the Grade 6 teachers at Lamont Elementary. Over the past 25+ years, I have had the privilege of teaching students in ECS through grade 9. I am confident this 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 is 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 2020-2021 school year! 

Communication

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.

Please note, instead of Google Classroom, our class will be using Brightspace to support our learning environment.
