Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to announce that Charlene Noskey has been appointed HFCRD’s FNMI Education Coordinator and Cree Language and Aboriginal Studies Teacher.

Charlene will work primarily in Central Office to support the division-wide FNMI education program, and at St. Stephen’s School in Valleyview as a Cree Language teacher.
“Charlene is a very skilled Cree language teacher and is very knowledgeable about Aboriginal culture. Our division is thrilled to further utilize her gifts and talents across the division,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “HFCRD is very lucky to have Charlene. Our Board of Trustees has made FNMI education a strategic priority for many years and Charlene’s work has been an important asset to continue the permeation of FNMI culture across the division.”
Charlene Noskey is originally from Loon River First Nation and has been living in Peace River for 5 years. During this time, Charlene enrolled in the University Studies program at the Northern Lakes College that led her to enroll in the Aboriginal Teacher Education Program through the University of Alberta. Charlene completed her studies in June 2016, and taught Grade 5 in Little Buffalo from September to November last year. Charlene is married with one son and is fluent in the Cree language.
