Email: Jaime.Bellows@stmu.ca

Hello, my name is Jaime Bellows and I am excited to be a part of the St. Mary’s Education Students Association as your Professional Development Officer. Before beginning the education program St. Mary’s, I completed a Bachelor of Health and Physical Education at Mount Royal University. With the knowledge I gained in my undergraduate degree, health and wellness has deeply inspired me to discover teaching as my vocation. I hope to foster an inclusive environment in my future classrooms which celebrates and encourages diversity and respect with my tenure as an Inclusion Facilitator at a recreation center in Calgary. In my spare time I enjoy going for runs in Fish Creek and escaping to the mountains for a hike! As your PD Officer, I am aiming to provide all pre-service teachers at St. Mary’s with opportunities to develop skills and gain knowledge. While in this role, I ultimately hope to support all education students in becoming lifelong learners. My piece of advice for first year students: Don’t be afraid to take some risks! This program is the perfect opportunity to try something new or challenge yourself.
