My name is Mr. Ian Cockburn (pronounced Co-burn) and this is my first year teaching at Range Lake North. I am excited to be teaching grade 7 Post Intensive French and am thrilled to be a member of the school. I am originally from southern Ontario but have moved to Yellowknife with my wife and standard poodle. We have been welcomed with open arms and I am eager to become a positive contributor to the school and community. 

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 as a Core French teacher instructing students from grades 4 through 8 in Ontario. One of my pedagogical goals is to ensure that each student is given the opportunity to learn in an environment which welcomes respect 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 an excellent year at Range Lake North.
