DGH’s Staff for the 2017-2018 School Year

posted in: Home Page News | 0

The start of the 2017-2018 has seen a number of staffing changes to Dr. George Hall PS!  Below you will find a list of our staff members.


We welcome a number of new staff members who are completing LTOs at DGH.  An LTO teacher is one completing a Long Term Occasional teaching position (kind of like being a supply teacher, but the LTO can last from a few weeks to the entire year).  Ms. Anckaert, Ms. Phendler and Ms. Armitage were at DGH last year and know many of our students, not to mention our school and its routines.  Ms. Elliot, Ms. Prins, Ms. Davis and Mr. Fournier are new to DGH, but our excited to join the Huskies team!  Ms. Elliot and Ms. Davis have supplied many times, in previous years at DGH, so they too know much about our school.  Our LTOs are looking forward to contributing to the DGH community and being a part of the Huskies team.


We also welcome Mrs. Bowman to an Educational Assistant position.  Mrs. Bowman worked at DGH previously (not to mention that her children attended our school), so this is a homecoming for her!  Last, not least, we are happy to have Ms. James onboard as our new Vice-Principal.  Ms. James knows many already in our school community as she lives in the area and her family has been active in the local sports scene.  She has also taught at DGH previously.


Our new staff members are looking forward to meeting the DGH school community this Wednesday at our Meet the Staff Night.
