Rebecca Edwards

Principal, Grade 4/5 Teacher

Phone: (403) 223-2487

Hello everyone!

My name is now Mrs. Edwards. It is my privilege to be the principal of L. T. Westlake Fine Arts Elementary School. I love the fine arts. I look forward to working with the Westlake staff and community to bring more fine arts opportunities to our school and integrating fine arts into daily core instruction. 

This year, I will also be teaching a variety of classes.  I will be teaching Grade 2 PE, Grade 5 math and Grade 4/5 health, CTF, PE and art.  I will also be working with students during our common guided reading block.  Starting in October I will be guiding extracurricular culinary art lessons and French club to all grades.

 I have resided in Manitoba and Quebec, but Alberta has been my home for many years. I currently live in Lethbridge with my husband and our crazy cat, Pepper. My husband teaches grade 5 at W.A Day in Fort Macleod. In our free time, we enjoy being active by going for long walks around Henderson Lake. We also love going to plays, museums, paint lessons and the movies. 

My B.Sc., B.Ed., and Master of Education degrees are from the University of Lethbridge, with a language minor. Having spent most of my teaching and administrative career at Chamberlain School in Grassy Lake, I feel close to many families in rural Southern Alberta. My goal is to work with my Westlake colleagues to help our students meet their life-long 21st century educational needs, while respecting and preserving the unique culture of the school and the community.

Please feel free to contact me with your suggestions or concerns or just to say hello.
