Student Teacher

Sandra McKinlay (nee Hill)

I attended the Hilliers School in 1952-’53. We moved down the road a mile and then I attended French Creek School from 1953-’58. Then I went on to Qualicum High School and on to the University of Victoria to follow my dream of becoming a teacher like Mrs Reddyhoff and Mrs Robson. Mrs Foster and Mrs Antrim also had their input into my passion for teaching. In 1965 I was fortunate enough to return to French Creek School as a student teacher in Mrs Evans’ class. I have so many fond memories I would need a book to list them all. The privilege of returning to my roots to do my student teaching is one of my highlights. My mentors and my heroines accepted me as a ”teacher!” Here’s to another 100 fantastic years of memories for students of French Creek School.
