Welcome to Div. 11. My name is Alison Klassen. I have the privilege of being one of the Kindergarten teachers here at Buckingham. I am so excited to begin a new school year with a wonderful new bunch of students! This is my 16th year at Buckingham Elementary and I love teaching here and being part of such an amazing school community! I have a Bachelors of Education from UBC and a Masters of Education from SFU focusing on Learning in the Early Years. I believe in creating a beautiful, welcoming classroom environment where students become life long learners. Students will develop the core competencies in a caring, hard working, respectful, and fun classroom. I am looking forward to getting to know your child and you! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. Let’s have a wonderful year together!
