Mrs. Dudley's Kindergarten Leaders

 

Mrs. Serena Dudley
Room 111 in Synergizing Circle

 

   I have been lucky to teach at C. J. Schurter since 2006. Before coming to CJS, I taught in Northern London, UK for 2 years. This is my 3rd year of teaching Kindergarten at CJS and I have also taught Grade 1, 2 and 3. I have lived in Slave Lake most of my life. My husband, two children (who are 3 and 5), and I love to go camping, fishing and quading.
