Hi, I am Jan Fast. I have worked in the Lethbridge
School District for 11 years. The past 7 yrs have been
here at Park Meadows with a wonderful and caring staff.
I enjoy working with individual students or with small
groups of kids increasing their literacy skills and a love
for reading. I have a wonderful husband and 2 teenage
sons, Michael and Erik. In my spare time I enjoy garden-
ing, hiking and traveling.                                                         Mrs. Fast
                                                                              Educational Assistant

                                   Hi, my name is Simone MacNeil and I am an educational assistant
                                   with Lethbridge School District #51. I have worked at Park Mead-
                                   ows for the past 3 years. The staff is amazing and a pleasure to
                                   work with. Currently I work in Miss Wagar’s fabulous grade 3 class-
                                   room. I assist a special needs boy who teaches me something new
                                   every day. The students at Park Meadows are an absolute delight
                                   and coming to work everyday is extremely rewarding. In my spare
     Mrs. MacNeil                  time, I enjoy walking, golfing, going to movies and spending time
  Educational Assistant            with my 2 sons, Jessy and Justin.

Time certainly flies by when you’re having fun. I can’t believe I have been
in this rewarding profession for 28 years! I have had experience teaching
kindergarten to grade six students in county schools as well as Lethbridge
School District 51. I’ve also dabbled in Special Education and Administra-
tion, but teaching is my first love. When I’m not teaching or pestering
Mrs. Sheets and Mr. Christiansen, I’m busy exercising, gardening, reno-
vating my house, spending time with friends and family and travelling to
my second home in sunny California. I recently joined a book club so that
I can learn about new and exciting books to read with some of my teach-            Ms. Wagar
ing colleagues! I love Park Meadows School. It is a pleasure coming to          Grade 3 Teacher
work each and every day!
