With great excitement, Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is pleased to announce two newly appointed staff members.  Congratulations to Krista Veitch, the Principal at École Providence School in McLennan for the 2014/2015 school year!  Congratulations to Fran Caudron, the 5thLearning Coach to be added to our team!  Both women are proven staff members at HFCRD with many years of teaching experience. We have been fortunate to witness their outstanding skills in the classroom and we look forward to working with these talented women in their new roles next year!  Please take a moment to read each of their bios below:

Krista Veitch
Principal – École Providence School

Krista was born and raised in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland. Upon the completion of her B.A and B.Ed from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1999, she moved to Ontario and taught for three years with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.  The following year she returned to Newfoundland and began teaching at a private Jesuit school. While her children were young, she enjoyed substituting as it allowed her to spend valuable time with her four daughters. Two years ago, she accepted a teaching position at St. Stephen’s School in Valleyview and moved to Alberta.

Krista lives in McLennan where she enjoys spending time with her family. She welcomes the opportunity to join the vibrant staff at École Providence and looks forward to working collaboratively to ensure continued student success.

Fran Caudron
HFCRD Learning Coach

Fran declares herself a “life-long learner”.    She was born in High Prairie, and raised on the family farm with 11 brothers and sisters, where her father still resides today.  She spent  Grades 1 to 9 at St. Andrew’s School and returned to teach at St. Andrew’s in 1989, where she has been teaching elementary grades for the past 25 years.  After 12 long years of study, Fran received her Masters in Religious Education in 2012. She is currently teaching Grade 4, where she feels privileged to have been able to work collaboratively with other Grade 4 teachers using a shared Google Docs site.

“The process of sharing formative and summative assessments, and unit plans with teachers across the division, and throughout Alberta,” says Fran, “has been a fantastic journey for me.”    Fran loves to travel, run, and enjoys spending time with her children: Mallory, 21, in Edmonton, and Morgan, 19, in Camrose,  who both attend the University of Alberta.  Fran is excited to begin this newest phase of her teaching career, and the growth and learning this will bring!
