Saffron Gurney has been working with children for the past 30 years and has no plans to stop. This is Saffron’s fifth year with IDLC and the New Westminster District. Her home base and teaching post is on Bowen Island.
She feels fortunate to have a varied position as the school-wide Art teacher for grades K-9 as well as the K/1 classroom teacher. Saffron also supports full-time home learners.
She has narrowed it down to three favourite aspects of her job, collaborating with families and teachers on cross curricular study themes, envisioning community events for the large school community, and learning from families the amazing dedication that they demonstrate as home learning parents.
