About Me

Hello parents and students,

Welcome to grade 2!  My name is Mrs. Karan Dobson.  I am teaching grade 2K at Walter and Gladys Hill Public School this year.  I look forward to a great year of learning and fun with your child.  I like to keep in touch with parents all year, so please sign up for REMIND, if you haven’t already. Also look for notes in your child’s Ziploc bag, from time to time. 

In 2012, I moved to Fort McMurray to become the Learning Coach at Dr. Clark Elementary School.  During my 3 years at Dr. Clark, I was a Learning Coach and grade 3 teacher, and I also took on the role of Acting-Vice Principal for half of the school year.  I moved to WGH in September, 2015, to teach grade 1.  Prior to joining FMPSD, I taught in remote fly-in First Nations communities in Ontario, as well as in the Nisga’a valley in northern BC.  My teaching career includes high school (grades 9-12 English), grades 1, 2 and 3, and 6 years as a Special Education Resource Teacher.  After becoming a teacher, I continued my post-secondary education to earn Special Education and Reading Specialist certification.  In 2013, I completed my Principal’s Qualifications in Ontario.
