Hello! My name is Bailie Shindle and I am currently in my second year of my education degree at the University of Regina. I am in my first year of teaching Pre-School in Sedley, SK. I never thought I would love teaching these little kids as much as I do. They bring so much happiness and acceptance into the world. I’m assuming you clicked on this link as you want to know a little bit more about me so let’s go way back.
My childhood: I grew up on a farm near Paradise Valley, AB. It was a tiny village, my school had 164 students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. My family was one of those families who hardly seen each other when we were growing up. Not because we didn’t like each other, it was simply because we were way too busy. Every night there was something different going on whether it was hockey, volleyball, basketball, school events, or leadership activities, or 4-H. In middle school, my sister and I got into an awful accident that resulted in her having a brain injury. I feel this had made me a stronger, more accepting person as a whole. I have a large family; my mom Virginia, my bonus dad Milt, my dad Ed, my bonus mom Jody, my brothers Devon, Lorne, Troy and Owen, and my sisters Desirae, Maddy, Merrit, and Kari.
My day-to-day life: My husband and I are farmers and we both lead busy lives. I was/am involved in multiple community events such as volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters in Lloydminster, organizing and leading a team to plan the annual Hillmond Zombie Mud Run, helping to organize the annual Presidents Gala for Lakeland College in Lloydminster, as well as many other events. I thrive on helping and volunteering in the community and I plan to continue to do so.
I use my life experiences to help me become a better person on a daily basis both professionally and personally. I want to teach students to be better citizens in the community and I want to be a teacher that students remember for impacting their life.
