MRS. KARI CHATTERSON
I am honoured to be a part of the Holy Child School! For the last 16 years I have been a junior high teacher at Our Lady of Peace and have had the opportunity to teach a variety of subjects. My favorite part of teaching is being able to help students realize their potential and build strength and resilience in those I teach. I live in the community of Chaparral with my husband, my son and our Australian terrier, Bitzer. Outside of teaching, I love spending time with family, travelling and being outdoors, hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. I’m looking forward to meeting my new students and their families in the fall!
MS. CAROL FOLEY - PE Teacher
My name is Carol Foley and I am excited to be a full time staff at Holy Child School this school year. I completed a degree in Kinesiology in 1999 and then pursued an Education degree at the University of Calgary. I have taught Junior High Physical Education, Math and Science, a variety of options and coached multiple sports over my teaching career. I believe teaching is a leadership opportunity filled with enthusiasm, compassion and mentorship to challenge each individual student to grow each and every day to be stronger and more confident in themselves. My two children, 13 and 11, along with our Great Dane and horse live out on an acreage just south of Calgary. I enjoy all sports and activities, so you will never find me sitting around! I am looking forward to a great year of athletics and learning at Holy Child School.

MS. CANDICE OLIVER
Hi my name is Candice Oliver. I’m very excited to be joining the junior high team at Holy Child. I was born and raised in a small town in Saskatchewan…a good old farm girl! From there I moved to Regina where I received my Bachelor of Education. After finishing my degree, I moved to Alberta. My first year I taught grade one with Christ the Redeemer School Division. The next year I moved to Calgary where I began teaching for the Calgary Catholic School Division. I began teaching grade six, them moved up to seven, then eight and then nine.

MRS. KATHLEEN RAINSONG
My name is Kat Rainsong. I have four children: two grown and two very much on their way. I love animals and have a small zoo at home: 3 cats, 2 dogs! I love to write stories and plays, to paint acrylic-abstract paintings, do ballet, watch theatre and do horse jumping. I am a highly dynamic, creative, and motivated individual who loves to teach. I have taught in one form or another most of my life. I am really excited to be part of the world of education and take very seriously the responsibility of being a significant part of shaping future generations. I have a strong English and Drama background and I strive to integrate this love of the Arts and of literature throughout the curriculum and into students’ hearts. I believe that through this integration and through Inquiry, I endeavor to encourage students to not only love learning, but to be confident, expressive, dynamic people.
