Fraser Pettifor joined North Point School for Boys in 2022. He is looking forward to sharing his love of learning with all of his students. Originally from Wetaskiwin Alberta, he has been living in Calgary for the past 9 years. He has taught for 8 years, with experience in grades 2 and 3 and 4. He gained a valuable knowledge base of teaching practices that he is excited to continue using in his classroom.
Fraser has a Bachelors of Education as an Elementary Generalist with a Psychology minor, from the University of Alberta. His classroom teaching will include student directed learning, meaning they will use inquiry based learning, self-discovery, independent and cooperative learning. He also likes to have fun in the classroom and will ensure that it is a safe, engaging, and inclusive environment. He believes not all students can excel with pen and paper tests, so projects and hands-on demonstrations of learning are a great way to make sure his students will be successful. He believes every student absorbs information in different ways. In his lessons, students will be engaged verbally, visually, musically, and kinaesthetically.
Mr. Pettifor currently live in Strathcona Park in Calgary. Some of his hobbies include playing the guitar, drawing, painting, and cooking. He enjoy many outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, canoeing, golfing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, and bicycle touring. He i also a big hockey fan. Being born and raised near Edmonton, he is inherently an Oilers fan, which gives him a lot of grief living in Calgary. Especially since the last battle of Alberta during the playoffs. Fraser looks forward to becoming a part of the North Point community, and getting to know everyone.
