My name is Joanne Townsend and I am thrilled to be teaching the Grade 7PIF class this year. My teaching career began in 2005 at Kaw Tay Whee School in Dettah, NT. I have been teaching Grades 7 & 8 at Range Lake North School since 2017. My husband and I have 3 children who also attend Range Lake North School. I am a dedicated lifelong learner and am passionate about sharing my educational journey with my children and my students. I feel very fortunate that I get to do this job every day, and there is nothing I would rather do. I am looking forward to getting to know my students and I feel very confident that we'll have a great year together!
