Kate Rapley

Friday Nature and Art Program

Kate has taught as an occasional teacher for the Lakehead Public Schools. She writes “It is exciting to teach with Northern Lights School as I have taught for so long without wanting to.”

Here is a small sense of the quality that will be in her teaching.

“I am breath, I am wind, I dance with all that surrounds me. Bending to the earth I touch her and I am touched. Stretching to the sky I open and I am blessed. Together with the children we will experience the magic of life.”

Hailey Surette

After School Care Supervisor

Hailey has an Honours BA in psychology with a focus on early development and education as well as an HB Ed.  She has worked in after school care, summer camps, early childhood education as well as with children and families with exceptionalities.

“I am excited to be joining the faculty of Northern Lights School in September 2019, running the after school care program and the Friday Parent and Child Program. I believe strongly in meeting children and families where they are and proving enriching educational experiences through nature and the arts. Northern Lights School, and the Waldorf philosophy, creates a opportunity for wonder and exploration of which I am delighted to be a part. “
