Hands down the best managerial job I've ever held, hoping to return to the Yukon and get a job again with the Yukon Government. Much support and respect from this position.

As a physical education and classroom teacher I performed my daily requirements.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) –  Whitehorse, YT2 February 2015
A typical day would see me receive eight classes of gym.
I learned that a teacher must be patient and attentive to the needs of the students.
One must communicate regularly with other teachers.
The hardest part of the job requires one to be everywhere all the time.
Seeing the students gain confidence was one of the most enjoyable parts of the job.

Elementary school Principal (Current Employee) –  Whitehorse, YT19 April 2014
I am an elementary school Principal. I lead by example. I take great pride in my work. I love working with children. I have a great sense of humor and managed to turn the school around in 1 year. With my support, my Grade 7 teacher received the Amgen Science Excellence Award. Only one person in Canada received this award. I am well-liked by the School Council, Parents, Teachers and children. We do well academically and in sport. I believe in educating the whole child.

My parents, teachers and students will be devastated when I leave!
Pros
Work with people, (children and adults). We work hard and play hard
