After five years at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School, Cheryl Rolston has returned to École Mother Teresa Catholic School to teach grade four French immersion.

“It’s nice to have change in your life,” said Rolston, adding that she is excited to be working with a different grade. “I love it that they can speak French really well.”

Rolston became interested in teaching after living in Colombia for a year when she was 19. While volunteering, she saw how education can affect people, including how they take care of themselves and their families, and how they promote themselves.

“I figured that it was a very worthwhile field to be in,” she said.

Rolston is originally from Penticton, British Columbia, but also lived in Saskatchewan for 10 years.

She attended the University of Regina for her teacher’s education, and has been living in Alberta for 10 years. She recently completed a master’s degree in educational leadership in Red Deer, offered through the City University of Seattle.

Rolston has training in fine arts in addition to French, and plans to introduce music and art to her students.
