Grade 7/8- Ms. McGregor

-Ms. Alexa McGregor-

Welcome!

I’m Ms. McGregor! Here’s a little about me! I moved to Hearst in August 2019 from Camlachie, Ontario. This is my second year teaching and it’s also my second year in Constance Lake! I have loved every moment of it so far! I graduated from Lakehead University in June 2019, where I received my bachelor degrees in Kinesiology and Education. Prior to this my time in University, I received my diploma in Fitness and Health Promotion at Humber College in 2012. I have been a certified swimming instructor and lifeguard for over 11 years, which is where I found my love of teaching and working with children! I have also instructed various Lifesaving Society Courses for upcoming lifeguards and I am also a certified Standard First Aid Instructor. I love to play sports and coaching is another passion of mine that I hope to get more into as my teaching career progresses. I have played and participated in Hockey, Soccer, Badminton, Volleyball, Swimming, Golf, Basketball, Rugby, Track & Field, Cross Country, Curling and Two-Pitch. In my spare time I love to run, workout, play sports, read books, go camping and paddle boarding, be active, walk my dog Molly, play with my rabbit Pancake and spend times with friends and family!

This year has been very different due to COVID-19 and we have been taking many precautions in order to be as safe as possible in the classroom! We have our desks spaced out for distance learning and we have our class split into 2 cohort groups coming to school on alternating days. In the picture below you can see what our classroom set up looks like right now in order to practice proper social distancing!
