My name is Mr. Ian Cockburn and this is my third year teaching at Range Lake North. I am excited to be teaching the grade 6 Intensive French program for another year. I am originally from southern Ontario but have moved to Yellowknife with my wife and a standard poodle. 

I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration from Brock University and my Bachelor of Education from Lakehead University.  Prior to coming to Range Lake North, I was working in Ontario as a Core French teacher instructing students from grades 4 through 8. One of my pedagogical goals is to ensure that each student is given the opportunity to learn in an environment that welcomes and promotes respect, effort and diversity.

When I am not teaching, or preparing to teach, my hobbies include reading, home renovation projects, hockey, snowshoeing, golf and going on walks with my wife and dog. I look forward to another excellent year at Range Lake North.
