My name is Samantha Tidd and I am excited to be joining the Sir John team teaching English Language Arts this year! I am originally from New Brunswick, but fell in love with the north while living in Alberta, where I worked as an Educational Assistant. I returned to New Brunswick in 2016 to attend St. Thomas University, where I completed my Bachelor of Education, and then made my way further north to Yellowknife. My hobbies include hiking, reading, yoga, and cooking. I am thrilled to be making Yellowknife my home and look forward to being a member of the YK1 community.
