David Cairns

Hello, my name is David Cairns and I am really happy to be part of the Bert Ambrose
community this year. I am taking on the Grade 3’s in Kim Fraser’s room while she is
away, and what a great group of kids we have there.
Last year I completed my B.Ed. at UBC. My B.A. came from the University of Alberta
and I also have an M.A. in Comparative Literature from Brock University. From 2017-
2019 I worked at a private school in Albania. It was there that I fell in love with teaching,
and learned the importance of creating many pathways for students to succeed and be
empowered by their learning.
When I’m not working you might find me riding my bike around the community, getting
ready to throw myself into the exciting world of cross-country skiing, or practising one of
my favourite pastimes: hiking. Once again, I am thrilled to be part of the Bert Ambrose
community this year!
