Hello! My name is Lily Vandebeek and I am teaching grade 7B homeroom and 7A for Science and Physical education. I am excited to teach at a Christian school where I know the community will be supportive and ever-present throughout the school days at TCS! I grew up in Southern Alberta and attended Immanuel Christian Schools from K-12. This is my first year of teaching as I just graduated this past Spring 2019 with a BA in Kinesiology and a BA in Education, along with my major in physical education. I love sports; through my post-secondary education, I had the pleasure to play basketball for the Lethbridge College and the University of Lethbridge. I also competed on the U of L Track and Field team in the throwing events, shot put and weight throw. I currently reside in Lethbridge with my incredibly amazing, supportive husband named Christopher and our cat Gus. When I am not teaching or planning I am most likely spending all my time with Chris. We love to camp, dirt bike, quad, fish, play sports, go for walks, host people, watch movies/ tv and, spend time with family and friends. I am looking forward to what this year brings and learning many new things about my students and teaching. I am thankful for the many blessings God has granted me and am very excited for the growth that will occur this year.
