With a welcome to Mr. Horyn in his first year at Pipestone School and welcome back to Tamara Vos.

Mr. Kevin Gibson:  Principal -

Born in Drumheller, raised in Calgary, moved to Wetaskiwin for my first teaching contract.  I have taught for a lot of years in the Wetaskiwin area.  Besides the joys of school I have three, all grown up, wonderful children, a beautiful, caring partner and a rambunctious, lovable dog fill my life.  I am a football coach at Wetaskiwin Comp (a lot of years as well:)

ECS - Mrs. Colleen Holtby (kindergarten is half-time; learning support and reading intervention is half time) 

I am Pipestone’s kindergarten and reading intervention teacher for grades 1-3. I have been teaching for 19 years minus 3 maternity leaves. This will be my fourth year in Kindergarten and I absolutely love it! I am married with 3 wonderful children ages 16,13, and 9. I live near Mulhurst Bay on an acreage and in my spare time I love to read, go kayaking on the lake, run, play with my pups, and cheer on my kids in their various sports. 

Grade 1/2 Combined - Mrs. Leonora Benson 

I am the grade 1/2 teacher at Pipestone School. My post-secondary education was attained through the University of Alberta where I received a Bachelor of Physical Education degree as well as my Education degree. I have been teaching at Pipestone School for over 16 years now. I reside in Edmonton with my husband Kevin and have 2 sons, Cole and Tyler. In my spare time I love to read, exercise, hike and watch hockey. I look forward to another rewarding year working with your children here at Pipestone School.

Mrs. Tamara Vos,

Hello my name is Tamara Vos and I am excited to be back at Pipestone school.  I am a mother of 6 very musical children and love working with kids. I’ve been an EA for over 9 years now, both in the Catholic and public school divisions.  My specialties have been in speech / special needs and early intervention. I love cats and in my spare time I love to listen to music and plant flowers. I am thrilled to be working with your children this year.
