    • Vice-President: Chantal Souter


      My name is Chantal Souter. I have been teaching in the Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division for 11 years. I currently teach Grade 3 at Ecole St. Peter School. I have been in various roles with Sask ECEC since 2008. Even from a very young age, I always knew I wanted to become an elementary teacher because of the inspiration I had from my own teachers growing up. To me, early childhood education is a blessing and I love every minute of it.

    • Treasurer: Klarissa Komarnicki

      Klarissa is presently teaching Grade 1/2 at Georges Vanier Catholic Fine Arts School with the Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division. She has been involved in the ECEC Provincial Executive  and the Conference Committee for many years in various positions.She is passionate about early childhood education and enjoys her time serving on the ECEC committee.

    • Membership/Website Coordinator: Kelli Stangeland


      Hi! My name is Kelli Stangeland and I teach Kindergarten in Prince Albert. I joined this committee because I desire to be part of a passionate community of early childhood educators who come together to learn, grow, and support one another.

    • Social Media Rep: Cassie Martens

    • Awards and Bursaries: Alison Hamilton

      I have been on the ECEC executive for about four years.  My current role is the Awards and Bursary Coordinator. I have been teaching for nearly 12 years with the last eight years being in Cut Knife mainly teaching grades 1 and 2. I am in a new teaching role this year as a Reading Interventionist for Grades 1 to 4. One of my favorite things about teaching in the early years is seeing the incredible growth that each child makes over the school year. I have a cat named Rosie and bearded dragon named Draco, he comes to school with me during the week. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, going for walks, swimming, going to concerts and travelling. I hope to go to Ireland this summer to get in touch with my roots.
